[IDHS] Governor Appeals FEMA's Denial of Assistance for Winter Storms

Entry Description
Governor Appeals FEMA’s Denial of Assistance for Winter Storms

Governor Mike Pence is appealing the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s denial of the state’s request for a major disaster declaration as a result of the winter storm on January 5-9.

In the appeal, Governor Pence is requesting public assistance (governments and certain non-profit organizations) for the following counties: Allen*, Benton, Blackford*, Boone*, Carroll, Cass, Clay*, Clinton*, DeKalb, Delaware, Elkhart*, Fountain, Fulton*, Grant*, Hamilton*, Hancock, Hendricks*, Henry, Howard*, Huntington*, Jasper*, Jay, Johnson*, Kosciusko*, LaGrange*, Lake*, LaPorte, Madison*, Marion*, Miami*, Montgomery*, Morgan*, Newton*, Noble*, Owen, Parke*, Putnam*, Rush, Shelby, Sullivan*, Tipton*, Vanderburgh, Vermillion, Vigo*, Wabash*, Warren, Wells, White*, and Whitley*.

If approved, public assistance grants would pay 75 percent of eligible expenses for damage to roads, bridges, utilities, debris removal, buildings’ contents and equipment, water control facilities, parks and recreational facilities, and other, as well as emergency protective measures like traffic control, rescue operations. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security would work with FEMA and local agencies to document allowable expenses.

The above counties listed with asterisks were requested to be designated for Snow Assistance. A Snow Assistance designation would cover all costs associated with snow removal for the 48-hour period with the highest costs. Of those counties, Noble and Whitley exceeded 150 percent of their record snowfall, making them eligible for 72 hours of Snow Assistance.
