Bismarck, ND - The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services (NDDES) announced today it has awarded two flood recovery grants totaling over $154,000.
NDDES has awarded grants of $93,092 to Barnes County and $61,711 to Richland County. Both grants will be used to refurbish flood damaged homes and will be administered jointly by Lutheran Social Services Disaster Response and the long-term recovery committees in each county.
Last year, the Legislature authorized the Housing Rehabilitation and Citizen Retention Grant program and appropriated $10 million to help North Dakota homeowners cover the costs of repairing flood-damaged homes. The funds also can be used for home demolition projects when homeowners remain in their communities.
