FEMA Public Assistance Program Dispute Resolution: Appeals, Arbitration, and Alternatives


Join attorneys from the Baker Donelson Disaster Recovery and Government Services Group as they discuss the available options to resolve disputes that arise under FEMA's Public Assistance or Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs. They draw upon years of experience dating back to the first arbitration under the original process (filed in 2009) to provide a deep dive into the FEMA administrative appeal process, the arbitration process, and other dispute resolution alternatives. The session will also include applicant insights from representatives who recently experienced and triumphed in these processes. 

The speakers will provide best practices to support efficient and effective resolution of issues based on their extensive experience with both processes and address recent appeal and arbitration decisions and the lessons learned from those actions.
