Lake County To Get Winter Storm Assistance
July 9, 2014 — Lake County will receive federal grants for the severe winter storm that severely affected much of the state from January 5th through the 9th. Governor Mike Pence’s office says adding Lake County to the list brings the total number of counties receiving assistance for the January snowstorm to 30. Newton County already received 2014 federal winter storm assistance.
Lake County is now eligible for FEMA Public Assistance and Snow Assistance grants. Public Assistance will pay 75-percent of eligible expenses for damage to roads, bridges, utilities. It will also cover costs of debris removal and other areas, as well as emergency protective measures like traffic control and rescue operations.
Snow Assistance will cover all eligible costs associated with snow removal for the 48-hour period with the highest costs.
