President Obama Signs New Hampshire Disaster Declaration




    President Barack Obama has signed a disaster declaration for the state of New Hampshire, ordering federal aid to help state and local recovery efforts in areas affected by a snowstorm during Jan. 26 to 28.

    The declaration says federal funding also is available to state and eligible local governments and certain nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and repair in Hillsborough, Rockingham, and Strafford counties, which got up to 32 inches of snow.

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

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.

    The state says costs associated with the storm exceeded $3.29 million.
