When it comes to Southwest travel, they’re always willing to do whatever it takes to stay afloat
By Kyle BuchananPublished January 15, 2018 12:45:49As of the end of 2017, the Federal Aviation Administration had raised $3.8 billion for its “Tropical Storm” relief effort, and $3 billion for “National Flood Insurance Program.”
But the money wasn’t all about that.
The FAA’s $3B disaster relief fund is the largest source of federal funding for storm relief, and the funds were spent by a combination of airlines, states, and local governments, according to data compiled by Business Insider.
The Federal Aviation Authority, the federal agency that oversees the FAA’s operations, said that between January 1 and March 31, 2018, it spent $3,933 million for relief from Hurricane Irma.
The money was earmarked for relief for coastal communities and those impacted by the hurricane, which caused $75 billion in damages in the Caribbean, Florida, Puerto Rico, and Texas.
But for the most part, the money didn’t come from the FAA itself.
Instead, the agency used funds earmarked to help pay for other things in the disaster relief process.
The majority of that money went to airlines, which were responsible for about $3 trillion in flights in 2017.
The airlines also spent about $6 billion to help people in need.
But the rest of the money came from state and local agencies that were charged with helping people recover from Hurricane Maria.
And while airlines received most of the funds, the states were responsible in about a third of the cases.
The federal government also used funds for storm recovery projects that it was funding through its “emergency supplemental” fund, which is available to states and localities.
These funds are used to help rebuild infrastructure after natural disasters and disasters caused by the flood or storm.
The “emergenet,” which is a placeholder for a disaster relief request, allows states to provide aid for disasters that threaten the health or safety of citizens.
The federal government can then take that funding from state governments.
But it is the states that have the authority to use the funds to pay for disaster relief projects.
The funding is distributed to local governments based on how many people are affected by a disaster, according the National Flood Insurance Fund’s website.
In 2018, more than 5.5 million Americans were directly affected by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, according data compiled from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
That’s the second-highest number in the country after Louisiana, which had 5.3 million direct and indirect direct victims of the hurricane.
A spokesperson for the Federal Aeronautics and Space Administration told Business Insider that “the funding is used for the following purposes:To provide essential infrastructure restoration, disaster management, and recovery, as well as assistance for communities affected by natural disasters or climate change.”
In 2017, $1.4 billion was distributed to states, cities, and counties for disaster-relief efforts.
The funds were split into two categories: “emergene” and “disaster assistance.”
The $1 billion that was allocated to states for emergency supplemental funding in 2017 was divided into two types of funds:Emergency supplemental funding is paid to state governments and local organizations for disaster recovery and restoration.
This type of money is meant to supplement the Federal Disaster Relief Act (FDRA) and other federal disaster relief programs.
FEMA funds are supposed to be used to rebuild homes, replace power lines, repair damaged roads, and assist with other needs.
The National Flood Protection Act (NFPA) is also an emergency supplemental aid program.NFPA funds can be used for flood-related needs like flood insurance and other flood mitigation.
The $3b in federal relief funds that were earmarked in 2017 were split between two categories, according a spokesperson for NFPA:Emergency Supplemental Relief (ESR) and Disaster Assistance (DA).
Emergency supplemental funds are available for disaster mitigation, including flood insurance, flood control and other mitigation measures.
FEMA is responsible for paying for this type of assistance.
According to the NFPA, FEMA funds can only be used on the following disaster relief:In 2018, $2.5 billion in FEMA funds was used to support hurricane relief.
It also spent $2 billion on storm recovery.
The money for storm-related emergency supplemental assistance was allocated for the states, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
In 2017 alone, the FAA spent $1,200,000 to pay a local county for a storm-disaster recovery project in North Carolina.
The county had received a request from the U:P to pay $1 million for a flood-protection project in the city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, according Data Center For Federal Emergency Preparedness.
The county’s decision to go ahead with the project was funded by a FEMA grant, according its website.
The total amount of funds for the project in Winston-salem, N.C., was $1M, according FAA’s website, which listed the amount of
