FEMA reimbursed $3 million to the Virginia Department of Transportation for removal expenses incurred in Prince William and Loudoun counties. The federal agency said the reimbursement is for snow removal from county-maintained roads that represented health and safety hazards.
To date, more than $45.7 million has been approved for Virginia applicants affected by the December 2009 and February 2010 storms.
Another $1.17 million was given to the Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative, for cleanup of February 2010 snowfalls. The cooperative is a non-profit utility that distributes electicity to commercial and residential consumers.
All of the money was distributed under FEMA's Public Assistance program, which was set up to reimburse local government for money spent on disaster recovery.
