The disaster declaration extension comes after a plea from Nevada’s Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sens. Dean Heller, R-Nev., and Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev.
The declaration extension gives state, tribal, eligible local governments and some nonprofits more time to apply for federal funds for emergency work, replacement and repairs.
Trump first declared northern Nevada a disaster area in February.
