Unauthorized Use of Draft Immediate Services Program (ISP) Application: During April 2014, FEMA used the draft version of the ISP application to evaluate whether the State of Washington needed the ISP portion of the Crisis Counseling Program for the Washington State mudslides that occurred on March 22, 2014. Washington State was approved for the ISP portion of the Crisis Counseling Program and FEMA only utilized the ISP draft application during this one incident. FEMA will not use the ISP or RSP applications until OMB has approved both forms for use. FEMA is disclosing the unauthorized use for transparency purposes during the OMB review and approval process.
