Grants will help aid recovery from Iowa disasters
Washington, DC – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has awarded a round of grants worth $2.8 million to help repair power lines damaged by flooding and prevent future flood threats.
The FEMA grants will help strengthen power lines that sustained damage in 2008 due to a series of severe storms, tornadoes and heavy rains. Another grant will be used to help prevent the threat from future floods in Manchester.
“This funding will help improve power lines and diminish the threat from future flooding,” Braley said. “These grants are an insurance policy against future disasters and an investment in future economic growth across Iowa.”
