DHS Industry Communication Liaisons – – (look for FEMA point of contact)

FEMA Industry Liason Program

DHS, which includes FEMA, is handled by Bernard Durham (SBA/PCR) in DC. His contact info is or (202) 510-0292.  He should be able to let you know who the SB Specialist is that supports DHS and FEMA. You must first register in SAM and check the box for disaster response.  That puts you on a disaster registry. About 90% of all of the FEMA “money” is going to be handled by the city and state governments so you definitely need to contact them as well.  Current federal contracts will be used until we get local contracts in place (Stafford Act).  If I can be of further assistance feel free to contact me.
