EFFECTIVE DATE: January 7, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Magda Ruiz, Recovery Division, Federal

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that, in a letter 
dated January 7, 2007, the President declared a major disaster under 
the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency 
Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121-5206 (the Stafford Act), as follows:

    I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State 
of Kansas resulting from a severe winter storm during the period of 
December 28-31, 2006, is of sufficient severity and magnitude to 
warrant a major disaster declaration under the Robert T. Stafford 
Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121-5206 
(the Stafford Act). Therefore, I declare that such a major disaster 
exists in the State of Kansas.
    In order to provide Federal assistance, you are hereby 
authorized to allocate from funds available for these purposes such 
amounts as you find necessary for Federal disaster assistance and 
administrative expenses.
    You are authorized to provide assistance for debris removal and 
emergency protective measures (Categories A and B) under the Public 
Assistance program in the designated areas, Hazard Mitigation 
throughout the State, and any other forms of assistance under the 
Stafford Act you may deem appropriate, subject to completion of 
Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDAs), unless you determine that the 
incident is of such unusual severity and magnitude that PDAs are not 
required to determine the need for supplemental Federal assistance 
pursuant to 44 CFR 206.33(d). Direct Federal assistance is 
authorized.
    Consistent with the requirement that Federal assistance be 
supplemental, any Federal funds provided under the Stafford Act for 
Public Assistance and Hazard Mitigation will be limited to 75 
percent of the total eligible costs. If Other Needs Assistance is 
later requested and warranted, Federal funding under that program 
will also be limited to 75 percent of the total eligible costs.

the extent allowable under the Stafford Act.

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice
