HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
The President declared a major disaster exists in the state of Alabama and ordered federal aid to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the area affected by Hurricane Isaac during the period of August 26 to September 5.
Federal funding also is available to state and 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 Hurricane Isaac in Baldwin County, Mobile County and Pickens County.
Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
FEMA said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.
