Special Federal-aid Funding


The ER program fund allocations shown on the attached table are based on amounts your offices had indicated were needed for obligation through the next six months. These funds are not subject to obligation limitation. You may authorize obligations of these ER funds up to the allocated amount from the FMIS program codes shown in the attached table. Since the total amount of requests exceeds available funding at this time, a prorated approach has been applied based on the proportion of allocation requests to available funds. Requests at or below $250,000 are being fully funded with the expectation that many of these will be final allocations in preparation for event close-out. All other requests are being funded at a proportional rate of 79.26 percent of each request.

Please ensure that the disaster fiscal year (four digits) and disaster sequence number (one digit) are entered into FMIS at project authorization. In addition, please ensure that the assigned ER Code is entered into FMIS, as shown in the attached table, to allow FHWA to track funding allocations by event and ensure compliance with legislative provisions.

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 Greg Wolf at 202-366 4655 or Katie Hulbert at 202-809-4758.
