Harrisburg, Penn. -- Officials from the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will hold Public Assistance applicant briefings for Tioga, Bradford, Lycoming, Sullivan and Wyoming counties on July 25, 26 and 27. The briefings will help representatives from the commonwealth, local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations apply for federal disaster assistance to support recovery from severe storms and flooding during April 25-28, 2011.

Following a request by the Governor for disaster assistance, a presidential disaster declaration was issued, making federal funding available to eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis. The declaration covers funding for emergency work and the repair or replacement of disaster- damaged facilities.
