Posted:

Pennington County, along with 13 other affected counties, will have the opportunity to receive federal financial help to recover from the early October blizzard with the signing of the disaster declaration by President Obama on November 8. The next step in the process is the Applicant Briefing.

The briefing for Pennington County potential applicants, along with Butte, Meade and Lawrence counties, will take place in Lead on Tuesday, Nov. 26th at 10:00 a.m. at the Days Inn located at 900 Miners Ave.

The South Dakota Office of Emergency Management will present the Applicant Briefing with FEMA personnel in attendance. The briefings are expected to last approximately an hour and a half.

An entity cannot receive federal funds for the October 3rd through 16th severe storms and flooding 2013 disaster unless they have attended an applicant briefing.

"If you're an organization that had costs related to the storm that are eligible under FEMA reimbursement rules, you have to make arrangements to attend this meeting," said Pennington County Emergency Management Emergency Manager, Dustin Willett.

Only damages from the October 3rd through 16th, 2013 will be eligible.

Entities wanting to apply will need to fill out a request for assistance, and will need a DUNS number in order to be eligible for federal assistance.
