FEMA assistance approved for flood damaged NY counties

FEMA assistance approved for flood damaged NY counties

Governor Cuomo announced Friday night that the state’s request to President Barack Obama for Federal public assistance aid for flood affected counties has been approved.

Following the collection of preliminary damage assessments, the Governor offered the President with data that demonstrated that the damage to public infrastructure had exceeded $32.7 million, well above the State’s $26.7 million per capita threshold.

Counties eligible for assistance include Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Madison and Oneida counties.

Additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the State and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.
