The ER program fund allocations shown on the attached table are based on amounts your offices had indicated were needed for obligation in the first half of FY 2019.
You may authorize obligations of these ER funds up to the allocated amount from FMIS program codes as shown. These funds are not subject to obligation limitation. Please ensure that the disaster fiscal year (four digits) and disaster sequence number (one digit) are entered into FMIS at project authorization. In addition, all projects using these program codes must include the assigned Emergency Relief Code (ER Code) in FMIS, as shown in the attached table, to allow FHWA to track funding allocations by event and ensure compliance with legislative provisions. All projects for Puerto Rico Hurricanes Irma and Maria (PR17-1) must use ER13 as shown in the attachment. FMIS program code ER13 has been set-up to account for the 100 percent Federal share for ER projects for Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico.
The listed ER allocations are being made for the specific events shown. Excess funds may not be moved from one event to another within a State. We will monitor FMIS to identify ER obligations and expenditures and will work with your office to periodically deallocate ER funds that are no longer needed for the events for which they were allocated.
By copy of this memorandum, we request that the Office of Budget - FMIS Team, Office of the Chief Financial Officer, process this allocation. If you have any questions regarding this allocation, please contact Mr. Greg Wolf at 202-366 4655 or Katie Hulbert at 202-809-4758.
