AUGUSTA – The Maine Emergency Management Agency is taking applications from communities to help them be better prepare for natural disasters.
It’s all part of the disaster declaration following the January blizzard that impacted people throughout the state. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is now providing about 600,000 dollars to help communities with projects that would lessen the impact of disasters.
Communities seeking the hazard mitigation funds have to meet certain criteria and must have their applications in by September. MEMA plans to hold workshops to help those communities through the application process.
Contact your local emergency management director for more information.
