The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency Thursday announced federal disaster aid has been made available to Georgia to supplement state, tribal and local recovery efforts in the area affected by a severe winter storm Feb. 10 through 14.

President Barack Obama’s action makes federal funding available to state and eligible tribal and local governments and certain private nonprofits on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the storm in 39 counties, including Fulton but not including Cobb or DeKalb.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide. W. Michael Moore has been named as the federal coordinating officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area. Moore said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.
