President Trump Signs 90-Percent Cost Share

President Donald Trump officially approved the federal government's 90-percent cost share for public assistance, including debris removal, for Hurricane Michael-impacted counties in Florida.

On April 19, DeSantis requested an increase in the federal cost share to 90 percent for all public assistance costs for Hurricane Michael. FEMA recommended that President Trump grant the State of Florida a modified cost-sharing at 90 percent federal funding for debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct federal assistance, for the duration of the disaster, except for assistance previously approved at 100 percent.

The State of Florida and City of Panama City will split the remaining 10 percent of the City's costs.
