DeFazio Announces $1 Million Federal Emergency Relief Grant for Oregon
U.S. Rep. Peter DeFazio today announced a $1 million Emergency Relief grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to the State of Oregon for the repair of federal highways and roads on federal lands that have been damaged by wildfire. The funds are available immediately.
"These funds come at a critical time," said DeFazio. "Wildfires have decimated over 600,000 acres of land in Oregon, including roads and highways, impeding commerce and Oregonians' ability to move around the state. This federal assistance will help Oregon Department of Transportation begin to repair the damage."
