Local governments and private non-profit agencies that sustained damage from flooding, tornadoes and severe storms in Wisconsin from August 17 to September 14, 2018 are encouraged to attend briefings next week to learn about applying for federal disaster assistance.
Last week, Governor Walker announced that 14 Wisconsin counties were approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for disaster assistance to help with costs associated with debris removal, emergency protective measures and damage to public infrastructure such as roads and bridges. The counties in the declaration are Adams, Crawford, Dane, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Iron, Juneau, La Crosse, Marquette, Monroe, Ozaukee, Richland, Sauk and Vernon.
Teams of specialists from Wisconsin Emergency Management and FEMA will explain how state and local agencies and certain private non-profit groups can apply for the Public Assistance (PA) program to help recover from flooding. Under the cost-share program, FEMA funds 75 percent of the cost for eligible work; 25 percent is shared equally between state and local applicants. The PA program is not for businesses or homeowners.
The briefings will last approximately 45 minutes. The applicant briefings will be held at the following times and locations:
