Debris Removal Assistance Now Available to Hurricane-Impacted Counties

Release Date Release Number
R4 DR-4563-AL NR 004

CLANTON, Ala. The major disaster declaration for the State of Alabama was amended on Sept. 25 to include additional FEMA Public Assistance (PA) for Debris Removal (Category A) in Baldwin, Escambia and Mobile counties. 

These counties were already designated for certain federal assistance in the declaration signed by President Trump on Sept. 20, 2020, including Individual Assistance (IA) and assistance with emergency protective measures (Categories B) under the PA program.

Through the PA program, FEMA supports states, counties, local governments and Native American tribes, as well as certain private nonprofit organizations recovery from major disasters by providing them with grant assistance for debris removal, life-saving emergency protective measures and restoring public infrastructure.

PA is FEMA’s largest grant program. PA grants cover 75 percent of eligible government costs.
