Program and reporting details for other programs, such as legislatively directed funding, will appear on this page when such funding is available.


Disaster Recovery Assistance Program (DRAP)

Disasters and emergency legislative funding occur frequently and usually unpredictably. These characteristics require a standard operating procedure for BWSR staff and LGUs to follow to optimize efficiencies, responsiveness, and legislative appropriations. In the event of a disaster, the program policy will provide BWSR staff and LGUs the needed implementation information and related processes of BWSR and other state and federal assistance providers.
