BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — More federal money is coming into North Dakota for flood recovery efforts.
The state's governor and congressional delegation say nearly $80 million is being provided through the Community Development Block Grant program. About $68 million of the money will go to Minot, where the Souris River last year swamped more than 4,000 homes and businesses. Ward County also was hit hard and is getting about $9 million.
The CDBG program is run through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The congressional delegation says that funds through that program and through the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Hazard Mitigation Grants program will provide more than $150 million for housing and permanent flood protection work.
The state also is making hundreds of millions of dollars available for disaster recovery efforts.
