ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Governor Parnell issued disaster declarations for two separate disaster events in November. The declarations activate State Individual Assistance (IA) for residents impacted by the 2013 Kenai Peninsula Borough Floods and the 2013 November Storms. State IA programs consist of Individual and Family Grants and Temporary Housing Assistance.
Residents within the Kenai Peninsula Borough can apply for damages which were a result of the Oct. 27-28 flooding. Residents within the Bering Strait Regional Education Attendance Area (REAA), Lower Yukon REAA, Lower Kuskokwim REAA, Fairbanks North Star Borough, City of Fairbanks, and City of North Pole may apply for damages incurred during the storm and power outage that took place between Nov. 5 and Nov. 14.
The Fairbanks North Star Borough’s new North Pole Branch Library is set to receive a $500,000 grant from the Rasmuson Foundation. The award is contingent upon the Library receiving $100,000 in local contributions. FNSB Mayor Luke Hopkins said, “We thank the Rasmuson Foundation for selecting our project, and we look forward to working with the community to raise these additional funds.” The grant will be used to support furnishings, fixtures, equipment and landscaping for the new library, which is currently being constructed.
The Library will be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 28th and 29th for Thanksgiving.
We will be open Saturday and Sunday during regular winter hours.
