New FEMA Thresholds and Indicators for Fiscal Year 2022

The Stafford Act and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regulations require FEMA to adjust several programmatic thresholds and indicators each year to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers. The new Fiscal Year 2022 thresholds and indicators were published on November 15, 2021 and apply to all major disasters or emergencies declared on or after October 1, 2021.

Those interested in the Statewide Per Capita Indicator should also review FEMA's December 14, 2020 Proposed Rule, in which FEMA expressed its interest in raising the per capita indicator and the minimum threshold. FEMA took public comment on the proposed rule (many comments focused upon the timing of such a change in the midst of a pandemic) but has not issued a final rule implementing any change.  

If you have questions or concerns related to FEMA assistance, please contact Erin Greten or any member of the Baker Donelson Disaster Recovery Group.
