Flood and Storm Impacted Counties Consider Joint Application to Assist in Repairs

Beginning on July 11, 2016 several homes, businesses and roads stretching across Ashland, Bayfield, Burnett, Douglas, Iron, Price, Sawyer and Washburn Counties sustained varying levels of damage due to flooding and high winds.

These eight Counties are considering a joint Community Development Block Grant-Emergency Assistance Program (CDBG-EAP) application to the Wisconsin Department of Administration, Division of Energy, Housing and Community Resources, that would provide assistance for repair of public infrastructure in low-moderate (LMI) communities, housing rehabilitation to low-moderate (LMI) income homeowners and business assistance to businesses that create or retain low-moderate (LMI) jobs.

In general, CDBG-EAP activities include: repairs to public facilities and public infrastructure; repair and/or replacement of dwelling units; and business assistance. The CDBG-EAP activities must be in direct response to disaster damage.

The proposed application must contain information that identifies the repairs and financial needs of public infrastructure, homes and businesses damaged by the storm beginning on July 11th. The level of need for repairs attributed to the July 11th storms is critical to the success of funding being available to assist qualifying applicants make the necessary repairs.

Local units of government, owner-occupied residences and businesses that sustained damaged from the storm beginning July 11, 2016 are encouraged to contact Kim Gifford - Housing Specialist, Northwest Regional Planning Commission at 715-635-2197. Information regarding the damages and financial assistance will be collected and your name will be placed on a waiting list for an application should the counties receive funding assistance.
