Governor Mike Pence Requesting FEMA Public Assistance Grants

Governor Mike Pence has requested federal grants for government and certain non-profit organizations in 19 counties for severe storms and flooding June 7 – July 29, 2015. FEMA public assistance grants are for governments and certain non-profit organizations that provide an essential government service. If approved, these grants will pay 75 percent of eligible expenses for damage to roads, bridges, utilities, buildings’ contents and equipment, water control facilities, parks and recreational facilities, and others, as well as debris removal and emergency protective measures like traffic control and rescue operations in the aforementioned counties. The Governor reserves the right to request assistance for additional counties if qualified damage is documented.
