“HORNE is passionate about serving. Driven by our own personal experiences surviving natural disasters, our proven approach marries compliance and speed so communities realize a full recovery faster.”

We rapidly respond to funnel recovery dollars into communities.

HUD Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR)

HORNE Government Services has experience with Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding across nine states and two territories.

Working by your side, we manage housing, infrastructure and economic development program implementation with best practices and processes that speed up your recovery.  We help you satisfy regulatory requirements, avoid deobligation and maximize the impact of the funding.

FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP)

We believe that smart hazard mitigation calls for careful planning to inform project selection and implementation. We come alongside your program to assist in selection criteria and scope development. We recommend ways to leverage HMGP and other federal dollars through mixed-use funding streams and public-private partnerships to ensure your recovery and mitigation initiatives are as comprehensive as possible.

Disaster recovery can be extremely complex. The most valuable commodity in a flood of options is a simple, straightforward solution. When your team members encounter a barrier, we offer best practices and optimal solutions that are based on real-world experience.

FEMA Public Assistance (PA)

HORNE Government Services approaches FEMA PA funding management as a long-term, collaborative effort between key stakeholders. The process takes the enormous breadth and depth of requirements and details impacting each funding recipient, and crystallizes them into direct, actionable guidance that results in successful closeout.

Our efforts create transparency and sustainable processes, reducing your risk of deobligation. Our goal is the same as yours – make the greatest possible lasting impact for the recipient with public assistance grant funding.

FEMA Individual Assistance (IA)

Assisting communities to relocate to emergency and temporary housing solutions is critical to recovery after widespread resident displacement. Our work in Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) programs provides short-term housing options for displaced survivors as they transition from emergency shelters to temporary or permanent housing solutions. This Direct Housing Assistance is a mission structured under FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program.

Environmental Services

Our environmental professionals proactively engage with the regulatory agencies to develop processes and programmatic agreements that facilitate the environmental review process. With clear guidelines and consistent approaches, they ensure that your program is compliant with all federal, state and local guidelines.
