Today, President Trump made additional disaster assitance available to the state of Florida by increasing the level of Federal funding for debris removal and emergency protective measures as a result of Hurricane Michael.
Previously, Florida was to receive 100 percent reimbursement for the first five days of debris pickup and hurricane relief efforts. The additional 40 days added by President Trump at the request of Governor DeSantis will facilitate support to the counties directly affected by the devastating impact of Hurricane Michael.
“I thank President Trump for taking decisive action at this critical time that will result in transformational improvement to recovery efforts for the many counties impacted by this natural disaster,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “Hurricane Michael survivors and all Floridians will be profoundly grateful. We thank President Trump for his unwavering commitment to the people of Northwest Florida.”
