Yesterday, President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. declared that the State of Florida is enduring a major crisis resulting from Hurricane Nicole and has enabled Federal aid to boost the aid received from State, tribal, and local sources for anyone affected by the hurricane from November 7 to November 30, 2022. The President’s move provides support through Federal money to those who have been hit in Brevard, Flagler, Lake, Putnam, St. Johns, and Volusia Counties. Assistance can provide money for temporary housing and to fix homes, introduce loans at a low rate for losses which have not been insured, and supply other methods to help individuals and business owners reclaim their lives following the disaster. Federal money is also accessible to state, eligible local government entities and specified privately owned not-for-profit organizations. In the context of hurricane Nicole, these organizations are eligible for partial financial assistance to cover the costs of emergency work and refurbishment or replacement of facilities damaged in these counties: Brevard, Duval, Flagler, Indian River, Martin, Nassau, Palm Beach, St. Johns, St. Lucie, and Volusia. The Federal government is providing financial assistance through a cost-sharing arrangement to undertake mitigation efforts across the whole state. Deanne Criswell, who works with the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the Department of Homeland Security, has appointed Thomas J. McCool as the Federal Coordinating Officer responsible for the Federal recovery efforts in the impacted regions. Background appointments may be made further on if the state attests to it and the examination of more destruction substantiates it. Those affected by the designated areas who live and/or own businesses can start applying for aid through the website www.DisasterAssistance.
