President Approves Disaster Declaration, Individual Assistance for Flood Victims

August 2, 2017 - Today, President Donald Trump approved the State of Michigan’s request for a major disaster declaration after the June flooding event. Although firm details on the assistance programs have not been released at this time, this declaration provides federal funds for state and local governments to use both in current disaster recovery efforts and future improvements to reduce the risk of another disaster event. In addition, the declaration also offers individual assistance for residents in the impacted areas, including Midland County.

 “We are incredibly excited to hear this news from President Trump,” says Midland County Emergency Management Coordinator Jenifier Boyer. “This declaration is a critical next step in helping our residents recover and rebuild after this event. We are still awaiting more details on how this decision will impact our recovery efforts, and we look forward to sharing more information with the community as it becomes available.”

Midland County residents impacted by the flood can register for individual assistance from FEMA by applying online at or by phone at (800) 621-3362. Residents with a speech disability or hearing loss should call (800) 462-7585.
