President Declares Disaster For Delaware
(Washington, DC) The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that federal disaster aid has been made available to the State of Delaware to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the area affected by Tropical Storm Sandy during the period of October 27 to November 8, 2012.
The action by President Obama makes federal funding available to state, 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 Tropical Storm Sandy in Kent, New Castle, and Sussex Counties.
Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
Additional disaster damage designations may be made at a later date if requested by the State of Delaware and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.
