Cortez Masto Applauds Over $5 Million in Wildfire Emergency Funding

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) applauded the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for awarding a total of $5,145,844.24 to the State of Nevada to help cover fire management, suppression, and recovery costs associated with the Little Valley Fire.

“The Little Valley Fire took a devastating toll on Washoe Valley and recovery efforts are still ongoing. I am thankful that FEMA has provided Nevada with additional resources needed to support wildfire disaster recovery. I will continue working to secure grants like this one to help defray firefighting costs, promote recovery activities, ensure our brave firefighters have the equipment and supplies they need, and that provide support to communities devastated by wildfires.”
