GRAYS HARBOR INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TEAM STAND-DOWN: The local Incident Management Team in conjunction with the Coastal Community Action Program are starting the process to stand-down formal flood relief coordination from the January 2015 Storm/ Flood.
All open requests for assistance processed through CCAP have been either addressed, are in progress or have been referred to other resources. The three teams from the Washington Conservation Corps have completed their work, although some volunteer groups are expected to continue working on already assigned rehabilitation projects for weeks or months to come.
Citizens with future needs related to the disaster will be referred to other possible resources for assistance. With the closure of the SBA loan application process, there is no additional relief assistance anticipated at this time.
