Notice is hereby given that, in a letter dated December 21, 2005, 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), in a letter to R. David Paulison, Acting Director, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security, as follows:
I determined that the damage in certain areas of the State of Mississippi resulting from Hurricane Katrina, from August 29-October 14, 2005, is of sufficient severity and magnitude that special cost-sharing arrangements are warranted regarding 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 declarations of August 29, 2005, September 1, 2005, October 22, 2005, and November 19, 2005, to authorize Federal funds for debris removal and emergency protective measures (Categories A and B), including direct Federal assistance, under the Public Assistance program at 100 percent of total eligible costs, through and including March 15, 2006. Effective March 16, 2006, the Federal funding for debris removal and emergency protective measures (Categories A and B), including direct Federal assistance, under the Public Assistance program, will be authorized at 90 percent of total eligible costs.
Please notify Governor Barbour and the Federal Coordinating Officer of this amendment to my major disaster declaration.
This cost share is effective as of the date of the President's major disaster declaration.
