The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act 42 U.S.C. 5121-5207 and 44 CFR 206.202(d)(2) provide that FEMA will annually adjust the minimum Project Worksheet amount under the Public Assistance program to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers published by the Department of Labor.
FEMA gives notice of an increase to $3,050 for the minimum amount that will be approved for any Project Worksheet under the Public Assistance program for all major disasters and emergencies declared on or after October 1, 2015.
FEMA bases the adjustment on an increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers of 0.2 percent for the 12-month period that ended in August 2015. This is based on information released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics at the U.S. Department of Labor on September 16, 2015.
