Last week, it was announced that Georgia would receive about $65 million in federal funding in areas that were impacted by disasters in 2017.
This money is to be issued from HUD’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery program.
Governor Nathan Deal stated that nearly $65 million would be designated for clean up efforts after last year’s storms, tornadoes, and damages related to Hurricane Irma.
It is not known how much each county will receive according to officials. Allocations are still contingent upon further assessments that need to be performed.
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) says some decisions about allocation of dollars will be made this summer.
The money is expected to go to areas that were impacted the most by the disasters.
