How It Works

CAYG helps navigate FEMA's Public Assistance process so users can focus on recovery. CAYG's workflows reduce the likelihood of submitting ineligible expenses, referencing outdated contracts, or following improper procurement practices that could result in federal clawbacks down the line.

Product Features


An intuitive, user-friendly interface enables ease of use and quick acclimation to both the platform and process. Through simple workflows, users can validate documents against applicable state and local government regulations, certify data, and create compliant requests for reimbursement.

Enables a self-audit of procurement and contracting activities to minimize ineligible costs and maximize cost recovery

Indexes essential elements of information (EEIs) in documents for easier review by state agencies and FEMA

Empowers subrecipients to demonstrate eligibility and compliance upfront and be prepared for a disaster
