Frankfort, Ky. – FEMA has approved $1,142,754 in federal funding to The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) for damage caused by the July 2022 floods in Eastern Kentucky. 

During the incident period, severe storms, heavy rain, and flooding caused overland surface flood waters to enter the Knott County Area Technology Center through doors and windows. Standing water remained in KDE facilities for approximately 10 days. 

KDE will use department resources and/or contractors to restore facilities and contents. Contents from the following rooms will be replaced: Administrative offices, automotive shop, building and apartment maintenance shop, business classroom, carpentry shop, health science classroom, IT classroom and janitorial supply. 

Funding for this Public Assistance (PA) project is authorized under Section 403 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. PA funds reimburse eligible applicants for the cost of debris removal; life-saving emergency protective measures; and the repair, replacement or restoration of disaster-damaged facilities like buildings, roads and utilities.

Applicants work directly with FEMA to develop project worksheets and scopes of work. Following approvals by FEMA and KYEM, FEMA obligates funding for the project.

The FEMA PA program provides grants to state, tribal, and local governments, and certain types of private non-profit organizations including some houses of worship, so that communities can quickly respond to and recover from major disasters or emergencies.

SANTA FE, N.M. – The FEMA Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Claims Office is making five years of flood insurance available to individuals and business impacted by the fire. To receive a federally backed National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policy, you must submit a claim for flood insurance no later than April 1. In most cases, there is a 30-day mandatory waiting period for all new NFIP policies. Submitting a claim for flood insurance coverage by April 1 will help to ensure coverage goes into effect before spring snow melt and monsoon season begin. 

People have two options for obtaining flood insurance through the Claims Office:

The Claims Office can pay up to five-years of flood insurance coverage through the NFIP. There are no out of pocket expenses, the Claims Office will pay for the premium directly. You can be reimbursed for a policy you purchased through a private insurance company after the fire.

Eligible claimants include:

Households that were not required to carry flood insurance prior to the start of the fire on April 6, 2022. Properties located in NFIP-participating communities in Mora and San Miguel counties.Properties outside of Mora and San Miguel counties but in proximity to the burn scar may be eligible on a case-by-case basis to those who can demonstrate an increased risk of flooding.

If your property was required to carry flood insurance before the fire, you are
