I have determined that the damage in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) resulting from Super Typhoon Yutu during the period of October 24 to October 26, 2018, is of sufficient severity and magnitude that special cost sharing arrangements are warranted regarding Federal funds provided under the Robert T.

Therefore, I amend my declarations of October 26, 2018 and February 25, 2019, to authorize Federal funds for hazard mitigation measures associated with sections 404 and 406 of the Stafford Act at 100 percent of total eligible costs with the following conditions:

1. CNMI must maintain the 2018 International Building Code through the closeout of the disaster; and
