Administrative Relief for Grantees impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria
On October 26, 2017, the Office of Management and Budget issued the attached memorandum, Administrative Relief for Grantees impacted by Hurricanes, to provide Federal agencies with flexibility to assist their grant applicants and recipients in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. The memo allows Federal agencies to approve short-term administrative, financial management and audit requirements under the Uniform Grants Guidance (aka UGG) for their recipients and potential applicants located in a county or parish where a major disaster has been declared under the Stafford Act as a result of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
EPA will utilize these flexibilities on a case-by-case bases for affected grant applicants and recipients. If you as an EPA grant applicant or recipient have questions please contact the appropriate EPA Program Office/Project Officer or Grants Management Office/Grants Specialist for more information.
