Federal funds for environmental defense are set to expire.
However, the state has managed to secure $100 million in funding to fund projects for local communities.
The funds are set to expire at the end of the month.
This money is going towards preventing flooding and storm damage and assisting local communities to respond to the hurricane Maria.
In total, the state has been able to secure more than $200 million in funds to help with the recovery from the hurricane.
According to a statement by Pennsylvania’s Governor Tom Wolf, this money will be used to support the recovery and restoration of the communities impacted by the hurricane and will also assist local governments with the cost of the restoration.
These funds will allow for the state to maintain and operate the flood mitigation projects in areas impacted by Maria, while also ensuring that we do not run out of money as the Federal government closes its doors and leaves the states alone.
Governors Wolf and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf are also the co-chairmen of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is responsible for responding to Hurricane Harvey.
While the Federal Government will no longer be providing funding, Pennsylvania will still be able to keep up with the pace of projects and maintain the pace at which the state is able to do those projects.
Federal funding is a vital tool to help communities recover from the devastating hurricanes and to protect their health and wellness from further damage.
As a state, we are going to do everything in our power to ensure that the state can continue to respond to hurricanropes and provide the necessary resources to the states and communities that need them.
We will continue to work closely with the Federal Government and the Federal State Governance and Administration to continue to make sure we have the resources that we need to help our governors do the right thing.
