Joe Biden

WASHINGTON — FEMA announced Thursday (May 6) that federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of Georgia to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe storms and tornadoes from March 25-26, 2021.

Federal funding also is available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the severe storms and tornadoes in Coweta, Fannin, Gilmer, Heard, Lumpkin, Pickens, Rabun and White counties.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

Leda M. Khoury has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected areas. Khoury said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further assessments.
