Natural Disaster Declared In Nebraska

President Obama has declared a natural disaster in Nebraska clearing the way for FEMA disaster aid to help areas hit by a severe winter storm last month.

Federal funding is available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the severe winter storm in Gage, Jefferson, Johnson, Nemaha, Pawnee, Richardson and Thayer Counties.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures for all counties and tribes within the state.
