The Maryland Emergency Management Agency says the federal government will reimburse Maryland state and local governments $25.4 million to cover most of their costs related to a January snowstorm.
Spokesman Ed McDonough said in an email that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has paid about $4 million to date.
The declaration covers the state government, 18 counties and the city of Baltimore. It enables them to recover 75 percent of their costs for emergency work and repairs.
Major disasters were also declared in Pennsylvania, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
