The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121-5207, as amended by the Sandy Recovery Improvement Act, Public Law 113-2, provides that FEMA will annually adjust the maximum grant amount made under section 422, Simplified Procedures, relating to 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 $121,800 in the maximum amount of any Small Project Grant made to state, tribal, and local governments or to the owner or operator of an eligible private nonprofit facility under section 422 of the Stafford Act for all major disasters or 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.
