As the state continues its efforts to support communities impacted by the February and March storms, the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) announces the addition of several counties to the Presidential Major Disaster Declaration for Public Assistance (PA).
On July 24, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) expanded Public Assistance to six additional counties impacted by the February and March storms. President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., originally approved the Presidential Major Disaster Declaration on April 3.
Public Assistance applies to emergency work, repair and/or replacement of disaster-damaged public facilities and infrastructure. PA is now available to Alameda, Imperial, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Ventura counties. They join Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Del Norte, El Dorado, Fresno, Glenn, Humboldt, Inyo, Kings, Kern, Lake, Los Angeles, Madera, Mariposa, Marin, Merced, Modoc, Mono, Monterey, Napa, Nevada, Plumas, Sacramento, San Benito, San Luis Obispo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Sierra, Shasta, Solano, Sonoma, Tulare, Tuolumne, and Trinity counties, which were previously approved for Public Assistance.
This declaration provides assistance to state, tribal and local governments for ongoing emergency response, recovery costs and hazard mitigation.
