AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: This is a notice of the Presidential declaration of a major 
disaster for the State of Arizona (FEMA-1304-DR), dated October 15, 
1999, and related determinations.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 15, 1999.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Madge Dale, Response and Recovery 
Directorate, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Washington, DC 20472,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that, in a letter 
dated October 15, 1999, 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 Arizona, resulting from severe storms, flooding and high winds on 
September 14-23, 1999, is of sufficient severity and magnitude to 
warrant a major disaster declaration under the Robert T. Stafford 
Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, P.L. 93-288, as 
amended (``the Stafford Act''). I, therefore, declare that such a 
major disaster exists in the State of Arizona.
    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 and Hazard 
Mitigation in the designated areas and any other forms of assistance 
under the Stafford Act you may deem appropriate. Consistent with the 
requirement that Federal assistance be supplemental, any Federal 
funds provided under the Stafford Act for Hazard Mitigation will be 
limited to 75 percent of the total eligible costs. If Public 
Assistance is later warranted, Federal funds provided under that 
program will also be limited to 75 percent of the total eligible 
    Further, you are authorized to make changes to this declaration 
to the extent allowable under the Stafford Act.

    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 Michael Lowder 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 Arizona 
to have been affected adversely by this declared major disaster:

    Maricopa County for Individual Assistance.

    All counties within the State of Arizona are eligible to apply for 
assistance under the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program.
