Emergency Assistance Program grant applications now available for damages sustained from August 27, 2018 to September 1, 2018
Residents in Columbia County, Dodge County, Jefferson County, Ozaukee County, Sauk County and Washington County whose homes were damaged by the August 27, 2018 to September 1, 2018 destructive storms and flooding may now apply for recovery funds through the Southern Housing Region Emergency Assistance Program.
These counties were recently awarded approximately $800,000 in Community Development Block Grant-Emergency Assistance Program funding to provide aid to low-to-moderate-income households affected by the flooding.
Funds are granted to applicants and do not need to be paid back. Applicants may only receive Emergency Assistance Program funding once, however, and they will not qualify for the program again if their homes are damaged by future flooding. Funds may be used to reimburse eligible applicants for work already completed and funds are available for those who have work that needs to be done. Applicants’ homes will be visited to see that repairs have been made or that there is still flood-related damage in need of repair. Homeowners and landlords who rent to low-to-moderate-income families may apply.
For more applications and more information about the program, please contact Sue Koehn at 800-552-6330 or [email protected]
