Wis. communities get $61M for flood relief

MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Jim Doyle says 62 Wisconsin communities will receive about $61 million in federal grants to continue recovery efforts from the floods of 2008.

Doyle says the money will help businesses and will also go toward projects like street repairs and culvert replacements.

Thirty-one counties were under a state of emergency after the June 2008 floods. Since then, Wisconsin has received $124.3 million in federal grants via the U.S. Housing and Urban Development.
