N.H. Receiving $1M In Federal Funding For Flood Damage Relief

Ella NIlsen

The federal Department of Transportation is making an emergency relief grant of $1 million to New Hampshire to help repair the damage from heavy rains and flooding in June.

The money will be used to repair damage in Cheshire, Grafton and Sullivan counties.

Between June 26 and July 3, severe rain and flooding caused widespread damage to local roads and bridges.

In a statement, Governor Maggie Hassan said the relief funds will be critical to supporting recovery efforts as communities continue to recover and repair the damage.

Hassan put in a request earlier this month for President Barack Obama to issue a major disaster declaration.

Officials in Lebanon estimated the flooding caused $6.5 million dollars in damage.
