Description: The objective of FEMA Recovery Policy RP9525.4 is to provide Federal assistance to eligible applicants for the extraordinary emergency medical care and medical evacuation expenses they incur to address immediate threats to life and property resulting from a major disaster or emergency. The federal Stafford Act authorizes Federal agencies to provide assistance. When the emergency medical delivery system within the designated disaster area is destroyed or severely compromised by a disaster event, assistance for emergency medical care and medical evacuations of disaster survivors from eligible public and private nonprofit hospitals and custodial care facilities is available to eligible Public Assistance applicants through Public Assistance grants, Direct Federal Assistance (DFA), or a combination of both.
