Expenses Related to Operating a Facility or Providing a Service

The Applicant may incur additional costs related to operating a facility as a result of the incident because of an increased demand for the services the facility provides.

These additional costs are only eligible if:

The services are specifically related to eligible emergency actions to save lives or protect public health and safety or improved property;

 The costs are for a limited period of time based on the exigency of the circumstances; and

 The Applicant tracks and documents the additional costs.

Potentially eligible increased operating costs include, but are not limited to, costs for:

 Generators at a hospital or police station  Water testing and treatment supplies in the immediate aftermath of the incident to counter

a specific threat

 Fuel for increased use of a pumping station

 EOC facility costs (e.g., utilities)

Examples of ineligible operating costs include, but are not limited to, costs for:

 Patient care, except as noted in Chapter 2:VI.B.9

 Administrative activities

 Provision of food, except as noted in Chapter 2:VI.B.5, 7, and 8

 Obtaining electrical power from an alternate source

 Obtaining water from an alternate source

 School make-up days, including contracted costs for bus service for make-up days

 Provision of fuel for school bus service

In such case, FEMA provides PA funding through that government entity as the eligible Applicant.
