NEW BERLIN, Wis. -- Specialists from Wisconsin Emergency Management (WEM) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will explain how Calumet County government and certain private non-profit officials can apply for public assistance.

The public assistance applicant briefing is scheduled to be held Wednesday, Sept. 15 at 2:00 p.m. in the Calumet County Court House, 206 Court St., Room 017 (basement level), Chilton, Wis. 53014-1127.

Officials will explain FEMA’s public assistance program for debris removal, emergency protective measures and the repair, restoration or replacement of damaged public facilities or infrastructure.

Under the cost-share program, FEMA funds 75 percent of the cost for eligible work; the remainder is split equally between state and local applicants.

Calumet County was added Sept. 7 to the major disaster declaration for Milwaukee and Grant counties signed by President Obama on August 11 for severe storms, tornadoes and flooding July 20-24.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
