President Obama says the District is eligible for federal aid to help pay for clean-up after the area's first big snowstorm, back in December.
The snowstorm that hit a week before Christmas dumped more than 23 inches around parts of the region. The Federal money is expected to cover most of what the District spent on snow removal for that storm.
The President's statement also says the city and some non-profit organizations can use the federal money to repair buildings damaged by the snow and to help prepare for future storms.
Now leaders from the District, Maryland, and Virginia will ask the federal government to help with costs from the two massive snowstorms in February, that left a record-breaking 56 inches of snow.
