Federal funding is available to State and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the severe winter storm in the counties of Belknap and Carroll.
Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
