EMA_PAOP"New PA Operational Delivery for Recipients and Applicants Course"An in-depth analysis of the Public Assistance (PA) Program determined that it had not evolved to meet the changing needs of its customers during the last 20 years. As a result, the program was re-designed to better serve applicants by streamlining and categorizing projects while eliminating the one-size-fits-all approach to process projects, regardless of the project's size or cost. FEMA is now implementing the revised PA program, in phases, to ensure it meets the needs of communities and governments as they recover from disasters. In this new program both FEMA and its’ stakeholders will utilize a web-based project tracking system and a Consolidated Resource Center (CRC), to allow for greater consistency with subject matter experts. This change to the Public Assistance program is not about what is done but rather how it is done. The “New PA: Operational Delivery for Recipients and Applicants Course” is your opportunity to receive training on the new PA Delivery Model. The 2 day course instructs attendees about the New Delivery Model and the Grants Portal Tool and will focus on the following topics: 1. The New PA Delivery Model and the State, Local, Tribal, and Territorial’s (SLTT) role throughout the process. 2. Demonstrate how to use the Grants Portal (SLTT Customer Relationship Management [CRM] Tool) and how to use the tool throughout the New PA Delivery Model. 3. Setting up an Organizational Profile. 4. Basic PA eligibility and where to find answers to PA eligibility questions. 5. Creating an Organization Profile in the Grants Porta. 6. Importance of the Exploratory Call (EC) and what information the SLTT is responsible to convey to the Program Delivery Manager during the EC. 7. Which documents are necessary to fully document all types of damages according to PA guidelines. 8. Preparing for the Recovery Scoping Meetings. 9. Understand the importance of and developing a Damage Inventory List 10. The three lanes within and the role of the CRC. Target Audience: All potential applicants to the FEMA Public Assistance Program to include local/state governments and/or private nonprofit organizations with facilities for emergency, medical, educational, utility, custodial care or other types of facilities that provide a governmental type service open to the general public.July 24 - 25, 2017 (Ohio EMA)Ohio Emergency Management Agency 2855 West Dublin Granville Road Columbus, OH 43235 Enroll
