Provided below for your information is the Calendar Year (CY) 2017 Consumer Price Index adjustment to the statewide per capita impact indicator for recommending cost share adjustments for major disasters.  Notice is hereby given that the statewide per capita indicator for recommending cost share adjustments for any major disaster declared on or after January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017, is$140 per capita of the State’s population.

Pursuant to 44 CFR 206.47, the statewide per capita indicator that is used to recommend an increase of the Federal cost share from seventy-five percent (75%) to not more than ninety percent (90%) of the eligible cost of permanent work under section 406 and emergency work under section 403 and section 407 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act is adjusted annually.  The adjustment to the indicator is based on the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers published annually by the U.S. Department of Labor. For disasters declared on January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017, the qualifying indicator is $140 per capita of state or tribal population.  This adjustment is based on an increase of 2.1 percent in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for the 12-month period that ended December 2016.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor released the information on January 18, 2017.
