On Mar. 21 2019, President Donald Trump initiated a declaration of disaster for the state of Nebraska. Flooding levels have reached record highs, and a multitude of public and private organizations have already begun to aid in outreach to affected state citizens. “Federal assistance is a key part in ensuring that we keep Nebraska strong and growing.” said Nebraska governor Pete Ricketts.

In essence, the declaration of disaster will allow the state to have more control regarding where to spend federal dollars to best help those affected by the floods. The counties Butler, Cass, Colfax, Dodge, Douglas, Nemaha, Sarpy, Saunders and Washington will be eligible to receive financial assistance. In addition, some Native American tribes would be granted monetary support as well, according to a statement issued by the White House.

The specifics on the declaration are expressed as follows: “Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.” Pete Gaynor, who serves as the acting administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), appointed Constance Johnson-Cage the Federal Coordinating Officer for the efforts in the Cornhusker State. The funds provided would be rectifying the most extensive natural disaster in the state’s history.
