FEMA: President Biden Approves Major Disaster Declaration for North Dakota

FEMA announced today that federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of North Dakota to supplement state, tribal and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by a severe storm, straight-line winds and flooding from June 7-11, 2021.

Federal funding also 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 storm, straight-line winds and flooding in Burke, Divide, Emmons, Grant, Kidder, LaMoure, Sioux and Williams counties.

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

Lance Davis has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected areas. Davis said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further assessments.
