FEMA Funds on Their Way to Ohio ... Eventually

(TNS) - Director of the Scioto County, Ohio, Emergency Management Agency Kim Carver said this week there is federal disaster relief money headed to Southern Ohio. It’s arrival just may take longer than expected, she added.

“All Scioto County jurisdictions will be eligible for reimbursement for up to 87.5 percent of costs associated with response and recovery to the flooding in February, including flood defense costs in the city of Portsmouth and village of New Boston,” Carver said in comments made when the state was approved for FEMA assistance in mid-April.

A declaration of emergency was signed by President Trump April 19 in response to flooding and landslides that slammed the area Feb.14-25. However, Carver said recently FEMA is using a new service model to deliver funds relating to the February disaster.
