Abstract: The Community Disaster Loan Program is authorized by section 417 of the Disaster Relief Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-288), as amended by the Robert T.

Local governments may submit an Application for Loan Cancellation through the Governor's Authorized Representative to the FEMA Regional Director prior to the expiration date of the loan. FEMA has the authority to cancel repayment of all or part of a Community Disaster Loan to the extent that a determination is made that revenues of the local government during the three fiscal years following the disaster are insufficient to meet the operation budget of that local government because of disaster-related revenue losses and additional unreimbursed disaster-related revenue losses and additional unreimbursed disaster-related municipal operating character. Operating budget means actual revenues and expenditures of the local government as published in the official financial statements of the local government.

Affected Public: State, local, or Tribal governments.
