FEMA announced that federal disaster assistance is available for the state of Kansas to supplement recovery efforts in the areas affected by a severe winter storm from Jan. 8-16, 2024. 

Public assistance federal funding is available to state, tribal and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the severe winter storm in the counties of Butler, Chase, Cloud, Edwards, Ford, Geary, Gray, Hodgeman, Morris, Osage, Ottawa, Pawnee, Shawnee, Stafford, Trego and Wabaunsee.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
