MONTGOMERY COUNTY IS INCLUDED IN PRESIDENT BIDENS MAJOR DISASTER DECLARATION

President Joe Biden has approved a major disaster declaration for Texas, unlocking more federal resources to assist the state struggling to recover from deadly winter storms. “Yesterday, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. declared that a major disaster exists in the State of Texas and ordered federal assistance to supplement state and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe winter storms beginning on February 11, 2021, and continuing,” the White House said in a statement Saturday. The President’s approval allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide more resources and assistance, including grants for temporary housing and repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help communities recover. The White House has been proactive in responding to the crisis, with the President had already approved an emergency declaration for the state last weekend and continuing to monitor the situation and work with local authorities there.
