FEMA denies appeal for Individual Assistance for flood recovery

August 10, 2012

Saint Paul – Today, Governor Mark Dayton received notification from FEMA that the agency has denied the governor’s appeal for aid for individuals and businesses as they recover from flooding in Northeastern Minnesota.

About the decision, Governor Dayton said, “I am very disappointed that FEMA has rejected my appeal of their decision to deny the Individual Assistance for Minnesotans whose homes, businesses, and lives were devastated by the terrible flooding.  I will ask the Legislature to include that assistance, estimated at $7.4 million in the upcoming special session.”

A copy of the letter from FEMA is attached.
