DHS/FEMA RIN: 1660-AB10 Publication ID: Spring 2022 
Title: Amendment to the Public Assistance Program's Simplified Procedures Large Project Threshold 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is revising its regulations governing the Public Assistance program to update the monetary threshold at or below which FEMA will obligate funding based on an estimate of project costs, and above which FEMA will obligate funding based on actual project costs.  This rule will ensure FEMA and recipients can more efficiently process unobligated Project Worksheets for COVID-19 declarations, which continue to fund important pandemic-related work, while avoiding unnecessary confusion and administrative burden by not affecting previous project size determinations.
