Dear Mr. Palmer:

This is to inquire whether you have resolved the problem you had encountered in obtaining funding for mitigation proposals on your home which suffered flood damage in the February floods. Please accept my apology the delay in this response.

The Federal Emergency Manamgement Agency has advised us that the Small Business Administration can provide up to 20% of the approved loan amount for eligible mitigation projects. If you are having trouble obtaining this mitigation funding, please telephone Ed O"Neill of my Seattle Office (206-553-554), who will be glad to check further on your behalf.

Sincerely,

Patty Murray United States Senator
