Oklahoma Gets HUD Funding to Aid in Disaster Recovery

October 30, 2008

The state of Oklahoma will get nearly $1.8 million to help pay for recovery efforts from spring storms, tornadoes and flooding in four counties.

U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Steve Preston announced Tuesday Oklahoma will receive $1,793,876 from HUD’s Community Development Block Grant Program.

The money will be used to repair homes, businesses and infrastructure in Craig, Latimer, Ottawa and Pittsburg counties.

The counties were hit by the natural disasters from May 10 through 13 and President Bush issued a major disaster declaration for the four on May 14.

The funding is part of $200 million dollars being sent to 15 states affected by natural disasters.
