Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) followed applicable Federal grant requirements. It is FEMA’s responsibility to hold Mississippi accountable for proper grant administration. MEMA did not provide proper oversight of a $29.9 million Hazard Mitigation grant, or follow Federal Regulations and FEMA guidelines when accounting for grant funds. As a result, FEMA has no assurance that MEMA properly accounted for and expended Federal funds.
