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.
