FEMA: President Biden Approves Major Disaster Declaration for New Hampshire

FEMA announced that federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of New Hampshire to supplement recovery efforts affected by severe storms and flooding from July 9-17, 2023.

Public assistance federal funding is available to the state 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 severe storms and straight-line winds in Belknap, Carroll, Cheshire, Coos and Sullivan counties.

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

William F. Roy has been named Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected areas. Additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further assessments.
