RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The list of Virginia localities eligible for federal disaster aid after Hurricane Sandy is growing.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Friday that New Kent County is now eligible for the agency's public assistance program.

State and local governments, and certain private nonprofit entities governments can apply for funding to help pay for repairs to public infrastructure, emergency protective measures taken during the storms and debris removal from public roads. The program reimburses at least 75 percent of disaster-related expenses.

The localities include: Accomack, Arlington, Clarke, Craig, Culpeper, Essex, Fauquier, Frederick, Greene, Highland, King and Queen, Lancaster, Loudoun, Madison, Mathews, Middlesex, Nelson, New Kent, Northampton, Northumberland, Prince William, Rappahannock, Shenandoah, Surry, Warren, and Westmoreland counties and the cities of Fairfax, Falls Church, and Manassas.
