A pair of state agencies are scheduled to hold sessions this week to help local governments and residents impacted by recent widespread flooding in northern Wisconsin in applying for available grants that would go toward things such as rehabilitation and structural repairs.
Officials with the Department of Administration and the Office of Commissioner of Insurance plan to hold two sessions to guide people through the Community Development Block Grant Emergency Assistance Program application process. The money that applications receive may be used for housing rehabilitation, business assistance and repairing local public infrastructure. The DOA has as much as $3 million available for applicants.
Officials with the Office of Commissioner of Insurance will also be assisting consumers with filing insurance claims. The office will have copies of several publications available, including a home inventory list and contact numbers for office staff.
The meetings will be held:
- From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday at the Ashland County Courthouse, 201 Main St. W., Ashland; and
- from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Friday at the Sawyer County Courthouse, 10610 Main St., Hayward.
