Why does Kenosha County, MN, need a $4 million emergency response fund?

Posted October 07, 2018 09:15:06 The federal government is looking to expand its emergency response capacity in the nation’s third-largest city.

On Monday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that would allow the U,S.

Treasury to tap into federal emergency response funds for communities that experience an increase in population due to an influx of refugees, displaced people, and other displaced persons.

The bill would also allow local governments to apply for $4 billion in additional federal aid from the Disaster Relief Assistance Act (DRAA).

The $4.4 billion would be divided among cities and towns that receive more than 3,500 new or increased residents per month, or 3,000 per month if there are 50,000 or more people.

The measure, which passed the House on a 419-to-1 vote, would also authorize the Secretary of Homeland Security to spend up to $500 million from the DRAA to help states and cities with their disaster response efforts.

The bill passed the Senate on a 228-to.24 vote.

“This is a huge win for Kenosaw County and our people.

Our community will continue to benefit from this additional funding, which would allow our emergency responders to continue their vital work and assist with recovery,” Kenosasas Mayor Bill Jones said in a statement.

The federal government has been struggling to keep pace with the unprecedented influx of people fleeing conflict and poverty, and has been searching for ways to ease pressure.

The Obama administration has put an additional $1.5 billion into the federal disaster relief fund for states, but the new DRAA legislation could help bolster federal assistance to the most affected states.

The Senate passed the DRAAA with bipartisan support last year, and House Republicans, led by Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., introduced a similar measure in March.

The Senate version, which is expected to pass on Tuesday, would add $1 billion in federal aid for states.

In the past, the Department of Homeland Defense has spent billions on aid for local disaster relief efforts.

But that money has often come from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which has limited the amount of assistance that can be given to localities.

The new DRAAA legislation would be the first time FEMA can tap into the DRAMA fund.

The program was created in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but it has not been used since then.

The legislation has received bipartisan support from both the House and Senate, and President Donald Trump has indicated that he would support the legislation.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The DRAMA funds are allocated to states based on population, and can only be used to help with disaster relief, as well as help local governments deal with an increase of population, such as a surge in refugees, people displaced from their homes due to war, or economic conditions.

The federal emergency disaster relief act has been in effect since the 1980s.

The $4-billion DRAAA funds have been earmarked for the following:• Federal aid for state, local, tribal, and tribal-controlled areas in states affected by hurricanes or other natural disasters• Federal emergency relief for disasters that are classified as pandemic-related• Federal disaster assistance for the National Guard• Federal grants to help communities respond to mass migration from the Middle East or regions in North Africa, the Central American region, and South Asia• Federal grant for State and local governments with emergency needs• Federal assistance for State, local and tribal communities and partners in emergency response and mitigation activities• Federal loan guarantees and other loans for small-scale and community-based programs in the states affected• Federal financial assistance to assist with mitigation of climate change-related impacts in the States impacted by hurricanes and other natural eventsThe bill also includes additional funding for emergency relief and mitigation programs that will help rebuild and restore the nation.

It also provides funds for the State Disaster Assistance Program (SDAAP) that supports disaster relief and recovery programs in affected areas.

According to the House bill, the DRMA funds are used to support disaster mitigation and mitigation efforts, disaster relief operations, and the establishment of disaster-resilience and resilience programs.

It is estimated that $8 billion of the $4-$5 billion is intended to help fund FEMA and state and local government recovery programs.

“The bill is critical to ensuring that we can continue to focus our federal emergency assistance efforts and invest in communities where our communities have been hit hardest by this unprecedented event,” said Rep. John Carter, R.I., the bill’s co-sponsor.

“We must make the states and localities of Kenosascondes a priority, and I urge President Trump and his team to help our constituents recover.”
