FEMA funding approved to cover four western Kentucky counties

FRANKFORT, Ky. – FEMA funding is heading to Kentucky to cover cleanup in four counties.

According to a release from FEMA, over $1.3 million has been approved to reimburse the Kentucky Department of Transportation for debris removal following the December 2021 tornadoes.

Debris after the disaster created an immediate threat to property and the public’s safety. The commonwealth was able to quickly clear the storm debris thanks to FEMA’s Public Assistance Alternative Procedures Program.

The funds will cover costs from debris in Caldwell, Christian, Hopkins and Muhlenburg counties.
