Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq. (the ‘‘Stafford Act’’). Therefore, I amend the declaration of August 24, 2012, to now authorize Federal funds for all categories of Public Assistance at 90 percent of the total eligible costs for the Santa Clara Pueblo. This adjustment to the Santa Clara Pueblo’s cost sharing applies only to Public Assistance costs and direct Federal assistance eligible for such adjustments under the law. Section 404 of the Stafford Act, 42 U.S.C. 5170c, specifically prohibits a similar adjustment for funds provided for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. Thus, Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funds will continue to be reimbursed at 75 percent of total eligible costs.
