provide assistance to individuals and to State and local governments to 
help them to respond and recover from a disaster. In order to receive

of facilities in the aftermath of such events must provide information

Requirements for Grant and Cooperative Agreements to State and Local 
Governments, places certain requirements on the State in its role as 
grantee for the Public Assistance Program, which includes monitoring 
and reporting program/project performance. States are required to 
submit progress reports on a quarterly basis which describe the status 
of those projects and any problems or circumstances expected to result 
in noncompliance with the approved grant conditions.

Tribal Governments.
