Transcript of 4.05H Program Evaluation

By: Summer Turner FEMA: Federal Emergency
Management Agency 1. What is the history of the program? FEMA's history can be traced back to the Congressional Act of 1803. The program responds to hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and other natural disasters that occur in America. In the 1960s and 1970s natural disasters like hurricanes that brought floods became the major focus of the program. After passing many Acts they provide insurance for homeowners as well. 2. Who benefits from this program and how? Anyone that is in the area of where a natural disaster can occur or threatens to occur. Citizens benefit with the insurance that FEMA provides if something every happens. When a natural disaster does occur, they provide help to the refugees that require attention. 6. What is the potential impact beyond the direct payment recipient? (For example, a small business grant could lead to lowering the unemployment rate in a particular area.) The potential impact beyond the direct payment recipient would be the availability of supplies takes a load of the citizens so they can focus on other areas which could help them find another job or get back to there old one. With this the unemployment rate of the area could potentially decrease a little bit because there will be people wanting jobs and a program that is also providing jobs to others. 7. What are the professional opinions in support of and against the program? The professional opinions of others are either in support of or against FEMA. Since there actions from Hurricane Katrina there reputation in New Orleans and surrounding areas is not the great. It has also been spoken of the FEMA is already preparing for the end of the world on December 21, 2012. Those think that FEMA is keeping important information that could be extremely beneficial from many citizens. 3. What is the yearly cost to the American taxpayer? What is the historical cost data? 4. What percent of the total federal budget is spent on this program relative to other programs? 5. What is the impact of this program on price stability, full employment, and economic growth? The End. FEMA uses a cost-effective approach to providing disaster services. The total cost of the program is around $18.8 billion. Depending on the taxpayer's income the yearly cost is different. For example, an average of $20,000 income the taxpayer would share $8.77. As income increase the cost percentage also increases. Citations:
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/esp_sociopol_FEMA06.htm The total federal budget spends about six percent on this program and other emergency disaster relative programs. Over the years the percentage has slowly increased. The impact from FEMA on price stability is offering discounted supplies to refugees that cannot be found in local stores as easily. It impacts full employment by helping citizens get back to there normal life and jobs. It impacts economic growth by helping them get back to where they can spend and buy products again to participate in the cycle of the economy.
