HUD Announces Federal Disaster Assistance for Alaskan Recovery

State affected by severe storms, landslides, mudslides, and flooding.

Last week, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the availability of their disaster resources for Alaska after President Biden issued a federal state of emergency for the state the week before. The state of Alaska has been hit with a number of extreme weather disasters since October 2021, the most recent of which was January 5.

“We declared a disaster emergency in the Boroughs and areas that are impacted by the wind storm,” said Alaskan Governor Dunleavy. “We have received reports that there are still layers of ice on the roads in Fairbanks, debris is flying across highways in the Valley, and the wind has blown roofs off.”

HUD will be providing mortgage insurance and home rehabilitation funding until the state of emergency has lifted.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president as he evaluates the emergency requests from states experiencing natural disasters.
  • For Secretary Marcia Fudge as she oversees HUD operations.
  • For state and local officials who are dealing with the results of severe weather.
  • For Alaskan residents who have been impacted by the storms, landslides, and flooding.
