President Declares Disaster for Montana
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that federal disaster aid has been made available to the State of Montana to supplement state, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the area affected by a severe winter storm and straight-line winds during the period of April 15-16, 2016.
The President’s action makes federal funding available to state and eligible tribal and local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by a severe winter storm and straight-line winds in Glacier, Liberty, Pondera, Teton, and Toole counties.
Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
Thomas J. McCool has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area. McCool said additional designations may be made at a later date if warranted by the results of damage assessments.
