Public & Local Govt. Assistance


GEMA's Public Assistance (PA) Division is responsible for administering the millions of federal dollars that communities are eligible for in the wake of disasters. The division works closely with local governments to ensure that reconstruction and rebuilding programs are completed in such a way as to reduce the risk of further losses.
