WASHINGTON — FEMA announced federal disaster assistance has been made available to the state of Rhode Island to supplement state and local recovery efforts in areas affected by a severe winter storm and snowstorm from Jan. 28-29, 2022.

The President’s action makes federal funding available to state, tribal and eligible local governments, and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities in Bristol, Kent, Newport, Providence and Washington counties, including the Narragansett Indian Tribe.

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

William F. Roy has been named the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal response operations in the affected areas. Additional designations may be made later if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further assessments.
