October 29, 2008

Maine is one of 15 states that will share in $200 million allocated by the U.S. Housing and Urban Development agency.

HUD Secretary Steve Preston on Tuesday announced the allocations for states affected by natural disasters.

Maine will receive about $2.2 million for flooding damage that occurred in several counties during severe storms last spring.

According to HUD, the funding is provided through the Community Development Block Grant Program and will help support each state’s long-term disaster recovery and critical infrastructure needs.
