Notice is hereby given that, in a letter dated August 4, 2011, the President amended the cost-sharing arrangements regarding Federal funds provided under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121et seq.(the “Stafford Act”), in a letter to W. Craig Fugate, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security, under Executive Order 12148, as follows:
I have determined that the damage in the Sovereign Tribal Nation of the Havasupai Tribe of Arizona resulting from severe storms and flooding during the period of October 3-6, 2010, is of sufficient severity and magnitude that special cost sharing arrangements are warranted regarding Federal funds provided under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121et seq.(the “Stafford Act”).
Therefore, I amend my declaration of December 21, 2010, to authorize Federal funds for all categories of Public Assistance at 90 percent of total eligible costs for the Sovereign Tribal Nation of the Havasupai Tribe.
This adjustment to the local cost sharing applies only to Public Assistance costs and direct Federal assistance eligible for such adjustments under the law. The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act specifically prohibits a similar adjustment for funds provided for Other Needs Assistance (Section 408), and the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (Section 404). These funds will continue to be reimbursed at 75 percent of total eligible costs.
