    I have determined that the emergency conditions in certain areas 
of the State of Michigan described in the Governor's request as 
resulting from contaminated water beginning on April 25, 2014, and 
continuing, are of sufficient severity and magnitude to warrant an 
emergency declaration under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief 
and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq. (``the Stafford 
Act''). Therefore, I declare that such an emergency exists in the 
State of Michigan.
    You are authorized to provide appropriate assistance for 
required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the 
Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public 
health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a 
catastrophe in the designated areas. Specifically, you are 
authorized to provide assistance for emergency protective measures 
(Category B), limited to direct Federal assistance, under the Public 
Assistance program. This emergency assistance is to provide water, 
water filters, water filter cartridges, water test kits, and other 
necessary related items for a period of no more than 90 days.
    Consistent with the requirement that Federal assistance is 
supplemental, any Federal funds provided under the Stafford Act for 
Public Assistance will be limited to 75 percent of the total 
eligible costs. 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 emergency 
assistance and administrative expenses.
    Further, you are authorized to make changes to this declaration 
for the approved assistance to the extent allowable under the 
Stafford Act.

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice 
that pursuant to the authority vested in the Administrator, Department
