US President Biden endorses Delaware disaster declaration
Yesterday, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. said a major disaster existed in the state of Delaware and ordered federal assistance to complement state and regional recovery efforts in areas affected by the remnants of Hurricane Ida from September 1-7, 2021.
Federal funding is available to eligible state and local governments and certain private non-profit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the remains of Hurricane Ida in New Castle County.
Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for state-wide risk mitigation measures.
Deanne Criswell, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of Homeland Security, has appointed Mark Kenneth O’Hanlon as federal coordinator for federal recovery operations in affected areas.
Additional designations may be made at a later date at the request of the State and supported by the results of other damage assessments.
