FEMA announced federal disaster assistance for Arkansas storm recovery

Arkansas – The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has recently announced a crucial update for Arkansas, following the severe storms that hit the state. This announcement comes as a relief for those affected by the natural disasters that occurred on June 25-26 this year.

The significant development is the approval of a disaster declaration for Arkansas by President Joe Biden. This declaration is a pivotal step as it unlocks federal disaster assistance for the state. This means that state, tribal, and eligible local governments, along with certain private nonprofits, will now have access to federal funding. This funding is intended to support and supplement the ongoing recovery efforts in the areas ravaged by the storms, straight-line winds, and tornadoes.

The announcement from FEMA specifically mentions several counties that are eligible for this assistance. These include Faulkner, Arkansas, Lonoke, and Poinsett. The inclusion of these counties highlights the areas most in need of support and recovery assistance. The federal aid is expected to play a significant role in helping these communities rebuild and recover from the devastating impact of the natural disasters they faced.
