Several Minnesota communities could be reimbursed for public infrastructure cleanup and repair costs from damage caused by heavy September rains and flooding.
If President Obama declares a major disaster, FEMA would fund 75 percent of approved costs. The State of Minnesota would pay the 25 percent non-federal share.
Though far less common, four Minnesota counties may also be eligible for federal aid available to individuals and households seriously impacted by the flooding. The last time the state received funding for individuals was in 2009 following severe flooding in the Red River Valley.
Earlier this month, HSEM, federal, state and local officials found $8.3 million in eligible public infrastructure damage and $10.1 million in estimated individual and household needs.
