President Donald J. Trump Approves Alaska Disaster Declaration | The White House

Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump declared that a major disaster exists in the State of Alaska and ordered Federal assistance to supplement State and local recovery efforts in the area affected by a severe storm from September 28 to September 30, 2017.

Federal funding is available to the State and to 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 in the North Slope Borough.

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

Brock Long, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of Homeland Security, named Thomas J. Dargan as the 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 damage assessments.
