The Connecticut Fire Academy in cooperation with the University of New Haven, is pleased to sponsor the National Fire Academy Course:
Administration of Public Assistance for Community Recovery R-335
This course provides the students with a thorough understanding of the policies, regulations, processes and requirements to receive Public Assistance Grants pursuant to the provisions of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, as amended.
Following a Presidentially declared emergency or disaster, state and local governments have the ability to receive grants from FEMA to offset their extraordinary costs incurred in response to, or as a result of, these events. In order to qualify for FEMA grants state and local entities must meet certain standards and be able to withstand an audit process. The APACR course focuses on eligible applicants' responsibilities and on methods to appropriately document their actions.
The course is presented through a series of lectures and discussions, individual and group activities, and scenario-driven exercises. To measure the student's success, a comprehensive exam of 25 multiple-choice questions is administered on the final day of the class. This exam coupled with a scored in-class project constitute a final grade. A score of at least 70% on each element must be achieved to successfully complete the course.
