OKLAHOMA CITY — Governor Kevin Stitt announced Wednesday night President Joe Biden approved additional federal funding for Oklahomans after this month’s historic winter storm.
According to the governor's office, the declaration delivers FEMA Public Assistance to municipalities, counties, and tribes in all 77 Oklahoma counties for infrastructure repairs and other costs related to the winter storm.
Officials said 16 counties were approved for Individual Assistance, which benefits homeowners, renters and business owners impacted by the winter storm in Canadian, Carter, Cherokee, Comanche, Cotton, Hughes, Jefferson, Le Flore, McIntosh, Oklahoma, Okmulgee, Osage, Pittsburg, Stephens, Tulsa, and Wagoner counties.
Gov. Stitt said the state is going to request additional counties be added to the declaration and asked Oklahomans to continue reporting their winter storm-related damages online if their county has not yet been approved.
