FEMA Releases Second Version of Public Assistance Program and Policy Guide for Public Comment

The Public Assistance Program and Policy Guide (PAPPG) is a comprehensive, consolidated program and policy document that outlines the Public Assistance Program into a user-friendly guide. PAPPG incorporates and supersedes language from PA Program publications and the majority of previous policies. The first version of the PAPPG was published for disasters declared on or after January 1, 2016. Some of these changes include language clarification and the addition of references to other federal programs that intersect with FEMA’s Public Assistance program.


In accordance with the planned annual revision schedule, FEMA posted draft revisions to the PAPPG to the Federal Register on September 23, 2016. A summary of changes can be found on the Federal Register along with the actual language changes.


All comments must be received through the Federal Register by October 24, 2016.


If you have any questions, please contact FEMA’s Intergovernmental Affairs Division at (202) 646-3444 or at FEMA-IGA@fema.dhs.gov.
