An applicant must notify the disposal agency such as GSA Regional and Headquarters offices, the Department of Defense (DOD) Base Realignment Closure (BRAC) Offices, and FEMA Regional and Headquarters offices of its intent to acquire the property. The notification should occur within 20 days after notification of property availability.

An applicant must formally submit a completed Excess Federal Real Property Program Application for Public Benefit Conveyances including supporting documentation to FEMA. After receiving this information, FEMA will then determine if the requested excess Federal real property is required for emergency management response use. The application process designed to ensure that the applicant's proposed use of the Federal real property is for emergency management use as an integral part of applicable State, local and Tribal government plans.
