SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  Notice is hereby given that, in a letter dated September 26, 2017, the President amended the cost-sharing arrangements regarding Federal funds provided under the authority of the Robert T.

(the “Stafford Act”), in a letter to Brock Long, Administrator, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Homeland Security, under Executive Order 12148, as follows:

I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the territory of the U.S. Virgin Islands resulting from Hurricane Irma during the period of September 5-7, 2017, 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 September 7, 2017 and September 9, 2017, to authorize a 100 percent Federal cost share for debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct Federal assistance, for 180 days from the start of the incident period.
