FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Pauline C. Campbell, Response and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that, in a letter 
dated October 29, 1996, the President declared a major disaster under 
the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency 
Assistance Act (42 U.S.C. 5121 et seq.), as follows:

    I have determined that the damage in certain areas of the State 
of New Hampshire, resulting from the Fall Northeaster rainstorm on 
October 20-23, 1996, is of sufficient severity and magnitude to 
warrant a major disaster declaration under the Robert T. Stafford 
Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (``the Stafford Act''). 
I, therefore, declare that such a major disaster exists in the State 
of New Hampshire.
    In order to provide Federal assistance, you are hereby 
authorized to allocate from funds available for these purposes, such 
amounts as you find necessary for Federal disaster assistance and 
administrative expenses.
    You are authorized to provide Individual Assistance, Public 
Assistance, and Hazard Mitigation in the designated areas. 
Consistent with the requirement that Federal assistance be 
supplemental, any Federal funds provided under the Stafford Act for 
Public Assistance or Hazard Mitigation will be limited to 75 percent 
of the total eligible costs.

    The time period prescribed for the implementation of section 
310(a), Priority to Certain Applications for Public Facility and Public 
Housing Assistance, 42 U.S.C. 5153, shall be for a period not to exceed 
six months after the date of this declaration.
    Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the authority vested in the 
Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency under Executive 
Order 12148, I hereby appoint Gary Pierson of the Federal Emergency 
Management Agency to act as the Federal Coordinating Officer for this 
declared disaster.
    I do hereby determine the following areas of the State of New 
Hampshire to have been affected adversely by this declared major 

    Hillsborough, Rockingham, and Strafford Counties for Individual 
Assistance, Public Assistance and Hazard Mitigation.
    Grafton, Merrimack, and Sullivan Counties for Public Assistance 
and Hazard Mitigation Assistance.
