Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq. (the ‘‘Stafford Act’’). Therefore, I amend the declaration of June 25, 2021, to authorize a 100 percent Federal cost share for debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct Federal assistance, under the Public Assistance program for a continuous period of 30 days beginning June 24, 2021.

The Stafford Act specifically prohibits a similar adjustment for funds provided for Other Needs Assistance (Section 408). These funds will continue to be provided at 75 percent federal share.
