Walker announces $1 million in CDBG funding for severe weather recovery in Crawford, Vernon counties

Gov. Scott Walker announced Sept. 28 that Crawford and Vernon counties in southwest Wisconsin will each receive an additional $500,000 in Community Development Block Grant-Emergency Assistance Program (CDBG-EAP) funding to assist low-income households affected by recent severe storms and flash flooding. The funds are part of up to $8 million that DOA has in available CDBG-EAP funding to help counties in their recovery efforts.

“This critical funding will help eligible residents recover from the damaging late summer storms and flooding by offering financial assistance to rehabilitate or, in some cases, to replace the homes they lost or to relocate,” Walker said. “This is part of the millions in funding that my Administration has made available to support affected residents and businesses as they rebuild.”...


Ken Notes: I like this, but there are always the projects that should not be funded that get cash vs. the projects that do not get funds that really need them. The communities need to establish a score sheet to assess priorities!
