Gov. Quinn announces $190 million in flood help

Posted:

Chicago - Gov. Pat Quinn says $190 million in federal grants and loans will be awarded to help Illinois residents and businesses in 35 counties recover from April floods.

 

Federal aid to the designated disaster areas includes $143 million in grants to help the estimated 58,000 residents whose homes were damaged or destroyed. The U.S. Small Business Association also approved another $47 million in loans.

 

Residents and business owners in the designated counties are eligible to apply for federal aid through August 8. The cutoff date was originally set for late July, but the Federal Emergency Management Agency approved the state's request for a 15-day extension.

 

Grants can be used to help with home repairs, replacement of damaged personal property and other disaster-related expenses.
