Vector Control

Key Points

Vector Control measures  may be eligible for PA Program assistance in the disaster area as emergency  protective measures when there is a serious health hazard. FEMA may provide  reimbursement for such costs at the written request of the State or local  public health officials. Verification of the threat by the Federal Centers  for Disease Control or State and local health agencies in accordance with  established ordinances is required.
   FEMA may reimburse short-term abatement costs  that are in excess of usual costs. The eligible costs are calculated by  comparing the disaster- related costs to the most recent 3 non-disaster years  of expenses for the same period.
