Notice is hereby given that, in a letter dated August 28, 2002, to Joe M. Allbaugh, Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, 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. 5121-5206 (Stafford Act), and the Insular Areas Act (48 U.S.C. 1469a(d), as follows:
I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the Territory of Guam resulting from Typhoon Chata'an on July 5-6, 2002, 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. 5121-5206 (Stafford Act).
Therefore, consistent with 48 U.S.C. 1469a(d) with respect to insular areas, and with your recommendation, I amend my declaration of July 6, 2002, 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 Governor of Guam and the Federal Coordinating Officer of this amendment to my major disaster declaration.
