PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine is getting $1.5 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help costs due to the blizzard from Feb. 8-9.

A federal disaster declaration had authorized aid for Androscoggin, Cumberland, Knox, Sagadahoc, Washington and York counties.

The money reimburses public agencies and certain private non-profits for 75 percent of their eligible costs. For the snowstorm, most of the costs were for emergency response overtime work and for clearing tons of snow from public roads and other public areas.
