The fourth edition of the “Public Assistance Program and Policy Guide” is scheduled for publication in January 2020. The updated draft has been released for a 45-day public comment period.

The draft guide and accompanying comments matrix is available for review on the FEMA website. FEMA will accept public comments submitted through Nov. 18.  All comments must be submitted toFEMA-PAPolicy@fema.dhs.gov using the comments matrix.
