Notice is hereby given that, in a letter dated May 31, 2001, the President amended 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.), in a letter to Joe M. Allbaugh, Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, as follows:
I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State of North Dakota, due to damage resulting from severe storms, flooding and ground saturation beginning on April 5, 2000, and continuing through August 12, 2000, is of sufficient severity and magnitude that special conditions are warranted regarding the cost sharing arrangements concerning Federal funds provided under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121 (Stafford Act).
Therefore, I amend the declaration of June 27, 2000, to authorize Federal funds for Public Assistance at 90 percent of total eligible costs.
This adjustment to State and local cost sharing applies only to Public Assistance costs eligible for such adjustment under the law. The law specifically prohibits a similar adjustment for funds provided to States for the Individual and Family Grant program (Section 411), mobile home group site Start Printed Page 32820development (Section 408), and the Hazard Mitigation Grant program (Section 404). These funds will continue to be reimbursed at 75 percent of total eligible costs.
Please notify the Governor of North Dakota and the Federal Coordinating Officer of this amendment to my major disaster declaration.
