supplemental, any Federal funds provided under the Stafford Act for

eligible costs. 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 emergency 
assistance and administrative expenses.

for the approved assistance to the extent allowable under the
