HEARTLAND FLOOD: Long-awaited recovery funds on the way to Iowa communities
Millions of dollars are on the way to help Iowans still recovering from the 2019 flood. The long-awaited funds are a massive relief to counties in northwest Iowa.
Over a highly anticipated conference call, officials from across Iowa quickly thanked the state for getting it done; $21 million on the way to fund, what have deemed priority projects.
Projects cover everything from levee and road repairs to property buyouts across 12 counties. @WOWT6News— Tara Campbell (@CampTara) February 14, 2020
State had $190 million in applications in front of them. This funding takes a bite out of that, but still a long way to go. Federal funds expected to cover off $100 million. @WOWT6News— Tara Campbell (@CampTara) February 14, 2020
