SALT LAKE CITY — President Donald Trump has freed up extra additional FEMA Public Assistance for residents of Salt Lake County in relation to the 202 Magna earthquake.

The disaster assistance funding, announced on Dec. 31, is intended to supplement state and local recovery efforts that resulted from the Magna earthquake and aftershocks that occurred in the area in March and April of 2020.

The assistance covers eligible disaster-related public infrastructure debris removal and emergency protective measures.

The funding also covers the repair or rebuilding of public facilities such as roads, bridges, water control facilities, buildings, equipment, public utilities, parks, and recreational facilities.

Public Assistance reimbursements are made on a cost-sharing basis to counties, municipalities, the state, tribes, and certain private nonprofit organizations for emergency work and infrastructure restoration.

The federal cost-share related to the earthquake is no less than 75 percent, with state and local applicants responsible for the leftover costs.

More information will be provided directly to eligible applicants, and residents can also learn more here.
