Notice is hereby given that, in a letter dated January 20, 2000, the President concurred with the Director's recommendation to adjust the cost sharing arrangements concerning Federal funds provided under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 51521 et seq.), and the Insular Areas Act (10 U.S.C. 1469a(d) in a letter to James L. Witt, Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as follows:
I have determined that the damage in the U.S. Virgin Islands, resulting from Hurricane Georges on September 19-22, 1998, is of sufficient severity and magnitude that special conditions are warranted regarding the cost sharing arrangements for Federal funds provided under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, P.L. 93-288, as amended (“the Stafford Act”).
Therefore, I concur with your recommendation to amend my declaration of September 24, 1998 to authorize Federal funds for the Individual and Family Grant, Public Assistance, and Hazard Mitigation Grant Programs at 90 percent of total eligible costs.
Please notify the Federal Coordinating Officer of this amendment to my major disaster declaration.
