Notice is hereby given that, in a letter dated June 19, 2007, 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, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security, as follows:
I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State of Kansas resulting from severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding during the period of May 4-18, 2007, 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 declaration of May 6, 2007, to authorize Federal funds for debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct Federal assistance, at 100 percent Federal funding of total eligible costs for a period of up to 72 hours.
This adjustment to cost-sharing applies only to Public Assistance costs and direct Federal assistance eligible for such Start Printed Page 36017adjustments under applicable law. The Stafford Act prohibits a similar adjustment for funds provided for Other Needs Assistance (Section 408) and the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (Section 404). Those funds will continue to be reimbursed at 75 percent of total eligible costs.
This cost share is effective as of the date of the President's major disaster declaration.
