FY06 Projects & Transition
recently informed the NIBS Multihazard Mitigation Council (MMC)
that FEMA funds are limited for FY 2006 (October 1, 2005 to September
30, 2006) and that the agency will be unable to support the American
Lifelines Alliance (ALA) during the coming fiscal year. Although
other partners to help support the ALA mission in the future are
being sought, the ALA has assessed its current situation and has
decided to initiate no additional projects at this time. Nonetheless,
current ALA projects for FY 2005 (October 1, 2004 to September 30,
2005) will be completed.
Given the ALA's track record of
conducting practical projects generating useful results in a timely
and cost-effective way, we are confident that new support will be
secured to fund ALA efforts in 2006 and beyond. Thus, the ALA is
very interested in hearing your suggestions for future activities
and partners that will contribute to its mission of achieving reliable
performance of utility and transportation systems during and after
any type of hazard event. Suggestions are always appreciated and
can be sent to Claret Heider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
you for your interest in ALA and consideration in helping us move
forward this important initiative.
