President Donald J. Trump Amends State of Texas Disaster Declaration

WASHINGTON – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced additional disaster assistance is available to the state of Texas.  The additional assistance authorizes an increase in federal funding for Public Assistance projects as a result of Hurricane Harvey beginning on August 23, 2017, and continuing.

The President’s action today authorizes 90 percent federal cost share of the total eligible costs for public assistance projects (emergency work and the permanent repair and replacement of disaster-damaged facilities), except for assistance previously approved at 100 percent.
