FEMA reports funds provided for recovery

MINOT (AP) -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency has provided more than $185 million to help the Souris River Valley recover from flooding that struck two years ago

The Minot Daily News reported that FEMA also manages a program providing temporary housing. It helped 2,100 households at its peak, but the program ends Sept. 24.

About 50 FEMA workers remain in the region to help residents of the Souris River Valley.

The largest beneficiary of public assistance has been Minot Public Schools. The majority of funds approved to help with infrastructure following the floods went to four counties: Ward, Renville, McHenry and Bottineau.
