President Donald J. Trump Approves Major Disaster Declaration for California

Washington, DC...The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced today that federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of California to supplement state, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by wildfires from October 8, 2017 and continuing.





Federal funding is available to state and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work due to wildfires in Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Napa, Nevada, Sonoma, and Yuba counties.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

William Roche has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area. Roche said additional designations may be made at a later date if warranted by the results of damage assessments.

###

FEDERAL AID PROGRAMS FOR THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

Following is a summary of key federal disaster aid programs that can be made available as needed and warranted, under President Donald J. Trump's disaster declaration issued for the state of California.

Assistance for state, tribal, and affected local governments can include as required:

Payment of not less than 75 percent of the eligible costs for debris removal and emergency protective measures taken to save lives and protect property and public health. Emergency protective measures assistance (Categories A and B), including direct federal assistance, is available to state and eligible local governments on a cost-sharing basis. (Source: FEMA funded, state administered.)
Payment of not more than 75 percent of the approved costs for hazard mitigation projects undertaken by state, tribal, and local governments to prevent or reduce long-term risk to life and property from natural or technological disasters. (Source: FEMA funded, state administered.)
How to Apply for Assistance:

Application procedures for state, tribal, and local governments will be explained at a series of applicant briefings, with locations to be announced in the affected area by recovery officials. Approved public repair projects are paid through the state from funding provided by FEMA and other participating federal agencies.

###



FEMA's mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards.

      Either you laugh at Trump and all he does and says, or you cloister yourself in your house with the bed covers pulled over your head and hope that somehow his election did not really occur . . . that this is all a really bad dream and soon you will wake up and find that we have a reasonable person in the seat of the Presidency.

        OK, after reading those posts I might have had enough of the childish crap. First off, I have had TWO, not just one, house burn down in my life. First one was as a child. I can plain as day remember my parents running in screaming "get out the house is on fire!!!". Only to watch as a young childs world burns to the ground right in front of them. Right before Thanksgiving, we had to slog out one hell of a winter. I was sporting the latest Red Cross pair of pants and a shirt, being passed around various friends and families houses for almost two years while we scraped together something of our own. The second house was in the Butte fire 36 years later. Everything was lost. My childrens pictures, my treasured collections, everything I could not gather at a moments notice, gone. Again. And no, I did not sue PG&E, because frankly, s!#t happens. I place more blame on the landowners and there horrible land practices (not the least of which BLM) for the explosion and growth of the Butte in the first days. I did what I could with my tiny chunk, but my neighbors did not. Maybe I should have sued them, I will never know.
        So lets get to the point here. Somebody posted " The Feds shouldnt send us any money beyond direct support of those who lost property, until we abandon the train to nowhere and fire all of our incumbent politicians and their appointees". And then we have the two, so far, idiotic replies. Let me break this down. The bullet train, and the incredibly irresponsible, childish actions of our politicians and appointess is the "real world". The liberal agenda is absolutely, without a doubt, on the crazy train. They are so far gone, it bogles my mind. You literally can't make this s#%t up, it is so far out there. Un frickin believable. The first post even goes so far as to demand, by name in CAPITAL LETTERS, the owner of this site to "get rid of these posts" in order to silence people who have a different view as they hold. Crazy train. They then proclaim divine knowledge by stating "And none of these idoits lost a home, if they even had one to begin with!!!" Wow. I'm sorry, how could you possibly know that? Because you are that bad a!s?
        No. You are a f-ing drag. You are so far gone pathetic you can't even see straight. California and its liberals, like a 3 year old kid, thumbs its nose at Trump and signs law after law saying, effectually, f*%k you. Then when daddy comes and offers money to help, you get loser dirtbags like yourself posting and saying crap like your replies to the OP "The Feds shouldnt send us any money..." Just like the lowlifes who didn't take the time to clear their land, only to have the inevitable Butte fire come through and wipe them out, and me thanks to pieces of s*^t like you, only to sue PG&E because of THEIR negligence. And to top it off, they feel justified. You are one hell of a piece of work. Grow up. And just in case you are a real sleeze bag who did not even lose a home in a fire, yet still post BS like you did, let me give you a real special F U.

          Do you understand that the posts you are complaining about are almost surely written by right-wingers? Think about it.

          I am sorry you've lost houses and can only try to imagine how traumatic that is. You and your family have my sympathy.

          But let's be real about CA. Yes it is run by Democrats who are mostly liberal. But our budget is in pretty good shape, Brown insisted that the rainy day fund be replenished, schools are mostly good, and our state colleges and the UC system remain world class. State taxes are progressive so the rich pay more (as they should IMO) and despite the high taxes people want to live here. The high speed rail project seems too visionary, but if you've been to Europe, Japan or China you know it can change for the better the way people get around. It is the future so let's quit complaining and hope they build it right (something I'm worried about).

          Nationally things are MUCH worse and not because of liberals. Unless you get your news only from FOX and Russian bots, Trump has shown himself to be unqualified by temperament and intelligence to be President, and he has disgraced his office with lies, impulsive tweets and bad behavior. I pray that the adults around him (Mattis, Kelly, Tillerson, McMaster) can keep us safe. I'm an old guy and this is by far the most scary administration I've seen. Thank God Corker is finally speaking out. Hopefully more Republicans will put the good of the country ahead of party and re-election and also say publicly what they are reportedly saying in private. They are the only ones who can influence the discussion because I know you are not going to be taking my word for how terrible Trump is.

Thank you President Trump. Despite the incredibly poor and unfair treatment he's been subjected to by our governor and congressional delegation, he continues to come through for the people of this state when we need it most. He cares about people, not politicians. His actions speak much louder than his words.

    So the underlings of the rogue ape Dotard pledge allegiance to a clear narcissistic sociopath. This is the Stockholm syndrome, such as Patty Hearst showed.
    Sad folks that buy the Con from the Don- sad.
    The majority in Ca are mature thinking folks that care about others, not the libertarian crap we see written here.
    The Country prospered under Progressive programs, and fell under the draconian Conservative policies.
    Look at the damage dome to Ks, La, and other states with Conservative BS economic policies.

    Ryan will soon have a bill in conference to reduce Medicare. That's right, they are coming after a good program you paid for. This is the sociopathic policies the GOP endorses all so the 1% can get tax cuts they don't need.

    It's too late to ask ya'll to wake up, you are in a Foxbot culture of stupid, you're too far gone to be able to listen to facts, data, history reason...too far gone, sad.

    The only person Trump cares about is himself. Do you actually listen to him or watch his incredible lack of empathy when he interacts with hurricane victims? He spent more time praising himself than expressing sympathy for the victims.

    People here and in much of the media do treat him poorly but he certainly deserves it. Never had we had a politician who lies so constantly and governs so recklessly. Listen to what even the Republicans are saying about him. Tillerson called him an F'ing Moron after Trump couldn't stay focused during a national security meeting on Afghanistan. They had to redo the meeting the next day with simpler slides and statements. Does that get played on FOX or on your social media? Your post suggests you are completely detached from reality.

      You seem too focused on what he says, and not enough on what he does and the results he's gotten. Stock markets are at all time highs, with gains of over 25% since the market realized that capitalism would be restored and socialism would be moved back into the dustbin of history. Unemployment is low, good jobs are being created, companies are investing in America again, and the best Supreme Court justice in 9 years was added to the bench. The North Korea s**t show that Obama handed him is finally being handled. Don't go crying wolf on how he's going to start World War III, they said the same thing about Reagan. Trump will back Kim down. The last 11 months have been a dream come true, but I'm still not tired of winning.

        You do realize, I hope, that corporate economics are not a 24 hour occurrence but are a result of a longer term strategy that tends to evolve over a period of time. Where am I going with this?

        Corporate profits are up but the stock market is not reflecting the gains. Read any analyst report and you will see we are headed for a 'correction' which will send the market down 10-15 points.

        GDP calculations have been 'adjusted' by Trump to reflect a better picture. This is public information. With a little time and effort you can discover on your own what he had the Bureau change, what they said about his request, etc. etc.

        True labor statistics are not actually good. The jobs being created are lower paying . . . more like Taco Bell cashier than Information Analyst with IBM.

        If one only looks at what the Trump admin reports, and not the true facts, it is easy to be persuaded we live in a Rose Garden. We do not. Come 2018, the impact of Trump will start to be felt. One area in particular will be food prices. Those needed to harvest crops (jobs only immigrants will do) are not around. They are either hiding or Trump ICE personnel have them in holding cells. So . . . the food rots on the vines. If supply and demand works, you are going to pay a bit more for your food. And don't count on Mexico to send us much at a reasonable price. Trump has so agitated the Mexican establishment, that it will be surprising if they send us anything.
