Disaster Recovery Management


Organizing Chaos

HORNE specializes in managing chaos and reducing risks associated with disaster recovery. By providing financial oversight and "as needed" program management, we remove program barriers for quick and effective funding with reduced risk of de-obligation.  HORNE knows effective program execution and compliance with disaster grant programs can be the most demanding aspects of long-term recovery. And done wrong, delays and de-obligations can cripple communities and hinder recovery.

Our Austin, TX, office anchors HORNE's government services practice group.  A team of Certified Public Accountants (CPA), Professional Project Managers (PMP®), Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE), Certified Government Financial Managers (CGFM) and other highly qualified professionals are proven in managing complex compliance requirements and the chaos so often associated with sub-recipients of varying needs and capacities.

HORNE partners with government to help organize chaos, and return disaster areas to pre-disaster conditions, with integrated financial compliance and program management by:

  • Implementing recovery programs
  • Ensuring appropriate applicant spending
  • Documenting recovery funding

Because HORNE has the foundation of a CPA firm, we are able to couple traditional accounting knowledge with an extensive understanding of FEMA and HUD programs, financial monitoring, and federal grant compliance.  Our field-tested knowledge of Stafford Act and CDBG compliance issues enables us to translate federal regulations into actionable guidance.

HORNE specializes in FEMA's Public Assistance Grant Program (PA) and holds unrivaled experience with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Disaster Recovery funding.
