The City of Beaufort will receive approximately $484,000 from FEMA for the cost incurred for cleanup and damages during Hurricane Matthew in 2016, according to city manager Bill Prokop.
The city was notified that the application for funding had been approved by the S.C. Emergency Management Division as well as Sen. Lindsey Graham’s and Rep. Joe Cunningham’s offices.
The funds will go into the city’s General Fund where expenses from the storm were charged, said Prokop.
