Information: FEMA provides support for the state of Montana and is a reimbursement program. PDD is for Public Assistance only and includes aid to public and certain private non-profit entities for certain emergency services and the repair or replacement of disaster damaged public facilities. FEMA PA grants cover the reimbursement of approved costs incurred in disaster related emergency work, including debris removal, emergency protective measures, road systems and bridges, water control facilities, public buildings and contents, public utilities, parks, recreational, and other; and for insurable structures within special flood hazard areas (SFHA). The community is the applicant and is responsible for the work. On-the-ground teams work with FEMA to determine costs and obtain approval. Applicant briefings with FEMA must occur which are followed with one-on-one meetings with each applicant.
