Additional flood relief announced


MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Jim Doyle announced Thursday that Wisconsin will get an additional $75 million in flood relief from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Communities will have to assess their needs and apply for relief funds. The money is to help with unmet housing, infrastructure and business needs.

More than 37,000 residents registered for aid in the roughly 30 state counties declared eligible for assistance.

Last year, the state received $49 million to support long-term recovery from the 2008 floods.
