CONCORD, N.H. (WCAX) - More flood relief has been unlocked for some New Hampshire counties thanks to a new disaster declaration.

The New Hampshire delegation wrote a letter to President Biden asking for the declaration to open federal relief resources.

The Biden administration approved a disaster declaration for five counties in the Granite State, including Coos, Carroll and Sullivan counties.

Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan, and Reps. Annie Kuster and Chris Pappas applauded the approval of the disaster declaration. They say the funding is vital to small communities who struggle to foot the bill for flood recovery.
