FEMA Reverses Severe Weather Decision for Indiana
19 Indiana counties will get federal money to pay for damage caused by severe winter storms after all.
Governor Pence‘s office says the Federal Emergency Management Agency granted part of the governor‘s appeal of the agency‘s earlier denial of funding. Grants will be available to counties who suffered the most damage in the storms between January 5th and 9th.
The public assistance grants will pay 75-percent of expenses for damage to roads, bridges, utilities and other public property, plus reimburse governments for traffic control and rescue operations. Counties eligible for the FEMA grants are Clay, Huntington, Jasper, Kosciusko, Madison, Morgan, Newton, Noble, Owen, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Tipton, Vigo, Wabash, White and Whitley.
