The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today that federal disaster aid has been made available to Alaska.
Federal money will supplement state and local recovery efforts in areas affected by severe winter storms and flooding in November.
Funds will be available for the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by storms in the North Slope Borough, and areas within the Bering Strait Region, the Lower Kuskokwim, the Lower Yukon, and the Southwest Region. Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
