Active Pennsylvania Disaster Declarations




Declaration DR-1898
On April 16, 2010, FEMA made a Presidential Disaster Declaration for the February 5-11, 2010 series of severe winter storms. This disaster declaration makes funding available through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program for state agencies, Indian tribal governments, local governments/communities, and certain private non-profit organizations. This funding is eligible for both hazard mitigation projects and plans in any county of the Commonwealth, not just those affected by the snowstorms.

This page provides specific information on this disaster declaration, DR-1898.
