INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) – The Federal Emergency Management Agency has denied Indiana’s request for aid following the snowstorm in early January.

Counties named in the request included Benton, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Jasper, Warren and White.

According to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, the grant request fell under FEMA’s designation of public assistance.

That money would pay 75 percent of eligible expenses towards debris clean up, snow removal and damage to buildings and equipment.

The state plans to appeal FEMA’s decision.
