President Donald J. Trump declared that a major disaster exists in the State of Oregon and ordered Federal assistance to supplement State, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by severe winter storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides from January 7 to January 10, 2017.

Federal funding is available to State, tribal, and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities damaged by the severe winter storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides in the counties of Columbia, Deschutes, Hood River, and Josephine.

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.
