The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has approved $833,740.95 for the Dauphin Island Water and Sewer Authority in US to restore the water system servicing parts of the west end of Dauphin Island. The grant was awarded through FEMA’s Public Assistance program. Under the FEMA Public Assistance program, state and local governments and certain private non-profits are eligible for partial reimbursement for the repair or restoration of public infrastructure, as well as for the cost of debris removal and emergency measures taken following a federal disaster declaration. FEMA manages federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident.
