Federal funding is also available to the state, tribal, and 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 storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds, and flooding in Cedar, Colfax, Cuming, Dakota, Dixon, Harlan, Logan, Thomas, Thurston, and Wayne counties.
Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures within the state.
