Ohio Receives Federal Disaster Declaration for February Flooding
Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that local governments, state agencies and certain private, non-profit organizations in 20 southern Ohio counties impacted by severe weather in February are now eligible for federal funds to help pay for damage repair and extra costs incurred as a result of severe storms, flooding, and landslides.

Following a request from Governor DeWine for a federal disaster declaration, President Donald Trump made the federal funds available today. Funding will be provided through FEMA’s Public Assistance Program, which repays local governments for eligible storm-related response and recovery efforts, including debris removal, emergency protective measures, and the repair, replacement, or restoration of damaged infrastructure.
