Drought Declaration for Jackson County, Oregon

Drought Declaration for Jackson County, Oregon

On April 21, 2020, the Board of Commissioners Declared a Local Disaster and Requested Declaration of a State Drought Emergency for Jackson County

How the Declaration process works:

State agencies can supply assistance in a drought through normal agency programs. If major state agency involvement is anticipated, or if federal assistance might be needed, the Governor will declare a state “Emergency.” This declaration provides state agencies with more emergency fiscal flexibility and sets the stage for various federal disaster declarations if needed. Requests for state assistance may be to the agency directly, or, in an “Emergency,” through Oregon Emergency Management.
