MONROE - Green County residents are eligible for money to help pay for last summer's flood damage, according to Green County Emergency Management Project Manager Tanna McKeon.

The $6 million in federal money will help homeowners in 30 states whose homes were damaged because of floods throughout the summer.

McKeon said Green County damage due to flooding was about $500,000.

The money will be given to people to help repair their homes, replace items such as furnaces and appliances, and provide support to victims of floods, according to a news release from The Wisconsin Conference of the United Methodist Church. The organization is helping to administer the program.

McKeon said the flooding could have caused mold problems that weren't discovered until recently or exposed leaks in roofs. The federal money will help pay to fix the problems, she said.

In June the county experienced flooding and throughout the summer heavy rains continued to plague the county, McKeon said. She said the financial assistance is needed.

"This is something that can help homeowners in Green County. I hope they apply for the grants," she said.

Homeowners must meet financial qualifications and other requirements to be eligible to receive the grants.
