[GOV] Governor Pence’s Appeal Adds Lake County to Federal Assistance List for January Snowstorm
Start Date: 7/9/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 7/9/2014
Entry Description

Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence announced today that Lake County will receive federal grants for the severe winter storm that severely affected much of the state January 5-9. 

This brings the total number of counties receiving assistance for the January snowstorm to 30.

Lake County is now eligible for FEMA Public Assistance and Snow Assistance grants. Public Assistance will pay 75 percent of eligible expenses for damage to roads, bridges, utilities, debris removal, buildings’ contents and equipment, water control facilities, parks and recreational facilities, and others, as well as emergency protective measures like traffic control and rescue operations. Snow Assistance will cover all eligible costs associated with snow removal for the 48-hour period with the highest costs.

Counties previously granted public assistance include: Allen, Blackford, Boone, Clay, Clinton, Fulton, Hamilton, Hendricks, Huntington, Jasper, Johnson, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Marion, Madison, Montgomery, Morgan, Newton, Noble**, Owen*, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Tipton, Vanderburgh*, Vigo, Wabash, White and Whitley**.

All counties in the previous list except Owen and Vanderburgh (designated by an asterisk) are receiving at least 48 hours of snow assistance. Noble and Whitley counties (designated by two asterisks) are being provided with 72 hours of snow assistance, because they exceeded 150 percent of their record snowfall. Snow Assistance grants cover all eligible costs associated with snow removal for the 48-hour or 72-hour period with the highest costs.
