Disaster Relief Funding Not Easy to Receive

Written by on August 15, 2017

Although the Federal Emergency Management Agency has made disaster assistance available to the state of Wyoming to help repair damage from the June floods, accessing those dollars won’t be easy.
Park County Emergency Management Coordinator Mart Knapp said that the steps to receiving the disaster assistance funds have begun, but the process won’t be simple, or quick.

Knapp says the County’s damages add up to over a million dollars worth of repairs, and the timeline is somewhere between 60 to 180 days to receive the funding.
Thomas J. McCool is the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area, and he noted that additional designations may be made at a later date if warranted by the results of damage assessments.
