FY 2017 Consumer Price Index (CPI) Adjustment

Dear Intergovernmental Colleagues:

Provided below and attached for your information are the FY 2017 Consumer Price Index adjustments to the statewide per capita impact indicator, the countywide per capita impact indicator, the maximum amount of Small Project Grants under the Public Assistance Program, the minimum amount that can be approved for any Project Worksheet under the Public Assistance Program, and the maximum amount of assistance provided under the Individuals and Households Program (IHP).

FEMA provides annual notification of the statewide and countywide per capita impact indicators, the maximum amount of Small Project Grants under the Public Assistance Program, the minimum amount that can be approved for any Project Worksheet under the Public Assistance Program, and the maximum amount of assistance provided under the IHP.  The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act prescribes that FEMA must adjust these limits annually.  FEMA bases the adjustments on an increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor released the information on September 16, 2016.

For any single emergency or major disaster declared on or after October 1, 2016:

·         Maximum amount of Individuals and Households Program (IHP) financial assistance provided to an individual or household:  $33,300

·         Maximum amount for Small Project Grants under the Public Assistance Program:  $123,100

·         Minimum amount that can be approved for any Project Worksheet under the Public Assistance Program:  $3,100

·         Statewide per capita impact indicator:  $1.43

·         Countywide per capita impact indicator:  $3.61

 

 

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