Texas to receive $31.2M more from FEMA for costs of wildfires

Posted on May 1st, 2013 No Comments

Texas recently received more than $31.2 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to replenish funds used in fighting wild fires in 2011.

The FEMA award will cover ground and air support, equipment costs, and meals and lodging incurred in battling wild fires in Swenson, Rockhouse, PK West, Wildcat, Oasis Pipeline Fire, Tejano Canyon, 101 Ranch Fire, Bastrop County Fire Complex, and Bear Creek. The Administrator of FEMA Region 6, Tony Robinson, said they are committed to provide necessary support to partners as the recovery process moves forward.

FEMA’s contribution represents 75 percent federal cost share that was made possible by Public Assistance grant. The funding is given directly to the state, which in turn will grant monetary funds to eligible applicants.
