Hello from the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston! We are through the remediation phase post-Harvey and looking toward building back our damaged facilities. 3 of 4 our catastrophically flooded parishes included K-8 schools and we are pursuing FEMA assistance at those properties. We would be interested in talking with anyone who has experience (particularly successful) obtaining FEMA reimbursement under similar circumstances.
Thanks in advance,
Construction and Preventive Maintenance
Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston
Document everything as they will come back years later to audit you and possibly ask you to return funds.
While at DFMC last week Lou Baird and I met Staton Vignes of the Sulzer Group. They are a firm which has a niche in writing and managing FEMA grants, disaster response, that will cover their management fees. Lou and I tried to find the “catch” in their system and haven’t found it. Discussion with the CFO from the Diocese of Brooklyn,NY, who used them after Hurricane Sandy was all positive.
I have worked on several projects in the New Orleans area providing hurricane windows to FEMA funded projects. I would be happy to send you their contact information if you shoot me an email.
