Panelists and attendees will discuss what county officials need to know in the event of a disaster to prepare for a response and recovery period that may not be eligible for traditional federal disaster assistance resources. Regardless of an event's cause or size, knowing the current state of federal oversight on disaster grants and financial management of grant funds and why grant management should be top of mind to recipients of FEMA and other federal disaster grants. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the financial oversight requirements applicable to disaster and mitigation programs.
