I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State of Mississippi resulting from Hurricane Katrina, during the period of August 29 to October 14, 2005, is of sufficient severity and magnitude that special cost-sharing arrangements are warranted regarding Federal funds provided under the Robert T.

Therefore, I amend my declarations of August 29, 2005, September 1, 2005, October 22, 2005, November 19, 2005, December 21, 2005, and March 7, 2006, to authorize Federal funds for debris removal (Category A), including direct Federal assistance, under the Public Assistance program at 100 percent of total eligible costs through and including May 15, 2007. The area eligible for assistance is limited to existing projects in the Mississippi Sound. The Sound also incorporates rivers and tributaries in the southern Mississippi region that are part of the intra-coastal waterway system.
