More Flood Funding for Ward County Residents

Posted: Updated:

One of Ward County's most effective flood recovery groups will be wrapping things up soon, but they aren't done helping residents just yet. 

That group is the Souris Valley Long Term Recovery committee.  They've given millions of dollars to help Ward County residents recover from the 2011 flood.

Over the past two years, the group has helped 600 Ward County residents rebuild their homes and recover.  They've given out $3.5 million in recovery grants to Ward County citizens who fall within the income guidelines. 

The group held their last meeting this month, but they've received another $1.2 million to give out to those Ward County residents.

"This is not a new grant, this is extra.  So, we sent letters out to those people, and they have to call us and sign some paperwork.  And if they need more receipts, they have to bring them in, but it's only for those 600 people," said Connie Philipenko, director of Souris Valley Long Term Recovery. 

The residents who received the original grants from Souris Valley Long Term Recovery have until July 1st to apply for the supplemental grants.
