Casey Applauds Disaster Relief for Philadelphia

WASHINGTON, DC-U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) applauded the decision by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to release federal funding to help Philadelphia recover from winter storms in February.  Philadelphia will receive $1,775,008.25 in federal grants for reimbursement for snow removal efforts.

“I wish to thank the Obama administration for providing this assistance to help Philadelphia with the great costs that were incurred from the February storms,” said Senator Casey.  “This funding will provide much needed relief to the communities that were affected.”
The City of Philadelphia will receive reimbursement for February 6-7th snow removal efforts on airport facilities, grounds and roadways.  Force account resources as well as contractor services and materials were used to provide these emergency measures.  There were additional costs associated with vehicle and equipment repairs.
