Barely a month has passed since Hurricane Ida traveled a northeasterly course from the Gulf Coast through several states leaving a damaged Pennsylvania landscape in her wake. A major federal disaster was declared for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by President Biden on September 10, 2021. The declaration provided Individual Assistance (IA) for the six counties of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Philadelphia, and York. Two additional counties, Bedford and Northampton, were added on September 24. Since then more than $35.8 million in federal assistance has been approved for Pennsylvanians. FEMA and its federal partners continue working daily to support the state and its’ residents as they rebuild their lives and communities.
