HAMILTON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – Officials announced Wednesday that Hamilton County will receive $800,000 from FEMA.  The county is getting this money as a result of the January 2014 snow storms.

The amount of snow and the extreme cold prompted county commissioners to declare a State of Emergency for the county, closing roads and government offices.

Hamilton County was initially denied inclusion in the state disaster declaration.

The county was added later to the declaration as financial costs for public assistance exceeded the threshold established by FEMA.
