UPDATE: Maryland To Receive FEMA Funding

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - It looks like help is finally on its way to local counties, after being damaged in Superstorm Sandy. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency will be giving federal disaster aid to Maryland.

The money will be available to state and local recovery efforts for the areas that were affected by the storm, between October 26th and November 4th. The funding will be given to state and local government, along with some private non-profit organizations to help with emergency work and repairs to facilities that were damaged.

Those areas locally include Caroline, Dorchester, Queen Anne's, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico, and Worcester Counties. Statewide they include Allegany, Calvert, Charles, Frederick, Garrett, Harford, Howard, Kent, St. Mary's, and Washington Counties, along with the independent City of Baltimore.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide. More designations could come up, if the state requests, and damage assessment results come back, as needed.
