AFG Tapped to Support FEMA in Hurricane Ida Recovery
AFG is currently providing disaster response and recovery support in Louisiana.
AFG is supporting the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Logistics Construction Support Contract (LCSC) Direct Housing Mission, as a subcontractor to Dewberry.
After Hurricane Ida, a Category 4 storm, made landfall in late August 2021, thousands of families were displaced due to their homes being damaged or destroyed. A Major Disaster Declaration for Louisiana was issued that authorized assistance for twenty-five parishes. The Direct Housing Mission includes the use of RV’s and Mobile Homes, installation of units in existing commercial RV/Mobile Housing Unit (MHU) parks, private sites, construction of new Group Sites and Emergency Group Sites to place RV/MHUs, and expansion of existing commercial parks.
AFG’s team of FEMA badged inspectors were deployed to 10 parishes in Louisiana as surveillance support. The teams work in a Joint Field Office in conjunction with additional subcontractors on separate tasks such as administrative support, data input, data analysis, cost estimation, housing/construction monitoring, design services, project monitoring, quality control, and contract surveillance.
The contract is scheduled to run through 2023.
