WV Governor Tomblin Requests FEMA Modification that would allow state, local governments and non-profit agencies to receive reimbursement for relief efforts
"At the time of the Emergency Declaration, no one knew how long this assistance would be needed," Gov. Tomblin said. "The response to the Elk River chemical spill is ongoing and many of our agencies continue to work hard to recover from this spill. I urge FEMA to modify the current emergency declaration so eligible expenditures by our first responders, state and local governments and non-profit agencies can be reimbursed."
As the current Emergency Declaration stands, public and non-profit agencies that have made expenditures to distribute supplies and meet the needs of those in the affected areas are presently denied access to Category B Emergency Protective Measures funding. A modification to the current declaration would allow eligible applicants in the affected counties to receive FEMA support, including reimbursement.
