To be eligible for PA, project costs must exceed $1,000, the work must be required as a result of the declared disaster, it must be located within the designated disaster area, and must be the responsibility of the applicant. Also, insurance must be deducted and assistance cannot be available from any other federal agency.

Examples of eligible private nonprofit facilities include some public utilities, custodial care and

medical organizations, and educational institutions. Eligible nonprofits must hold current federal

tax-exempt status and possess a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number.
