WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that federal disaster aid has been made available to the Santa Clara Pueblo to supplement the tribe’s efforts in the area affected by severe storms and flooding during the period of September 13-16, 2013.

The President's action makes federal funding available to the Santa Clara Pueblo and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work as a result of severe storms and flooding.

Nancy M. Casper has been named as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected area.  Casper said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the tribe and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.
