White House: FEMA Will Lose $900M Under Sequestration

The White House estimates that funding for national response to disaster situations will be reduced by $878 million if the defense automatic budget cuts happen, The Washington Post reports.

According to the report, if sequestration pushes through, the Federal Emergency Management Agency‘s disaster relief program will be most affected with a 8.2% cut.

The budget for disaster relief from FEMA’s $580 billion budget is $14.3 billion.

Another FEMA program that will be affected is the pre-disaster mitigation fund with a $3 million cut from the $36 million budget.
