Notice is hereby given that, in a letter dated July 21, 2004, 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 (the Stafford Act), as follows:
I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the Federated States of Micronesia, due to damage resulting from Typhoon Sudal on April 8-14, 2004, 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 (the Stafford Act).
Therefore, I amend my declaration of April 10, 2004, to authorize Federal funds for Public Assistance at 90 percent of total eligible costs. The law specifically prohibits a similar adjustment for funds provided to States for the Individuals and Households Program and the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. These funds will continue to be reimbursed at 75 percent of the total eligible costs.
This adjustment to State and local cost sharing applies only to Public Assistance costs eligible for such adjustment under the law.
Please notify the President of the Federated States of Micronesia and the Federal Coordinating Officer of this amendment to my major disaster declaration.
