[GOV] Governor Pence's FEMA Appeal Successful; Federal Assistance Granted for January Storms
Start Date: 4/22/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 4/22/2014
Entry Description

Indianapolis - Governor Mike Pence received word today that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has granted his appeal for federal assistance for the severe winter storms that impacted much of the state from January 5-9 this year. 

The major disaster declaration from FEMA will allow grants to 19 counties. The state can now request assistance for additional counties. 

“This has been an arduous process, but the outcome is good news for Hoosiers,” said Governor Pence. “These grants will provide millions to local governments and select nonprofits that are hurting financially, and I congratulate the counties, cities, and towns for their perseverance.” 

Counties granted public assistance include: Boone, Clay, Hendricks, Huntington, Jasper, Kosciusko, Madison, Morgan, Newton, Noble**, Owen*, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Tipton, Vigo, Wabash, White and Whitley**. 

All counties except Owen (designated by asterisk) also will receive 48 hours of snow assistance. Noble and Whitley counties (designated by two asterisks) will be provided 72 hours of snow assistance.

FEMA public assistance grants will 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 others, as well as emergency protective measures like traffic control and rescue operations in the aforementioned counties. The Indiana Department of Homeland Security will work with FEMA and local agencies to document allowable expenses. 

Counties that were denied assistance include Allen, Benton, Blackford, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, DeKalb, Delaware, Elkhart, Fountain, Fulton, Grant, Hamilton, Hancock, Henry, Howard, Jay, Johnson, LaGrange, Lake, LaPorte, Marion, Miami, Montgomery, Rush, Shelby, Vanderburgh, Vermillion, Warren, and Wells.
