Hazard mitigation/recovery part-time opportunities in NY.

Opportunities involve housing buyouts through the NY Rising program, and document retrieval teams for public assistance grants and will probably last a couple of years based on the amount of work and funding available. 

1.  Buyouts:  For the Buyout project, basically an H2O Team will be trained in the Mohawk Valley area to work in the field with communities to complete the Property Information forms in the FEMA Grant Application packet. It entails researching tax appraisal information, gathering floodplain information, maps, etc. Buyout are being funded by FEMA under Hurricane Irene and Sandy at 100% reimbursement. We've identified 10 jurisdictions within the Mohawk Valley area that are interested in submitting a grant application for properties in their community. To date, there are approximately 200 properties on the buyout list. H2O is seeking 2 part-time personnel preferably with a background in planning or mitigation. However, a professional individual that works well in a team environment that can be trained is fine too. The pay is $35-$40 per hour, plus travel expenses.

2.  Public Assistance Document Retrieval:   CDBG/PA/Document Retrieval Team (GOSR) - is a group of staff who will be traveling through affected communities retrieving documentation to complete files for Public Assistance projects. We start in Irene and Lee affected communities and will eventually move on to Sandy. Contract staff will need an insured vehicle, laptop, and some PA knowledge (training available). We are looking for resourceful, independent people who are comfortable traveling and working alone or in small teams with remote supervision. 

Both of these jobs will provide experience with FEMA and State Emergency Management programs that are very desirable for employers.
