FEMA requires those who ask for a disaster declaration to enter a cost share agreement, usually 75%/25%. The SOA pays this cost share if they request the fed dec. Local governments cannot request a fed dec. Tribes as sovereign entities can, but they then pay the cost share.

The state does not charge 25%. When the state asks the federal government for a disaster declaration is pays a 25% cost share. Tribes are able to ask the federal government for a disaster declaration directly and are responsible for the the cost share when they do so.
