President Declares Disaster for Louisiana

FEMA announced today that federal disaster aid has been made available to the State of Louisiana to supplement state, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the area affected by severe winter storms during the period of January 8 to January 17, 2013.

Gerard M. Stolar has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area.  Stolar said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments. Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

You can read the full press release here.

Application procedures for state, tribal and local governments will be explained at a series of applicant briefings with locations to be announced in the affected area by recovery officials. Approved public repair projects are paid through the state from funding provided by FEMA and other participating federal agencies.
