Wis. communities get $61 million for flood relief

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Jim Doyle says 62 Wisconsin communities will get about $61 million in federal grants to help recovery from 2008’s floods.

The money will go to help businesses as well as projects ranging from street repairs to culvert replacements.

Doyle declared a state of emergency in 31 counties following flooding in June 2008. The state has received $124.3 million in U.S. Housing and Urban Development flood relief grants since then.
