Federal government approves $110 million in aid to Michigan residents affected by flooding


DETROIT — The federal government says more than $110 million has been approved for Michigan residents to help recover from August flooding.

The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report the update was given Thursday and includes assistance for 92,000 residents. The deadline to apply for the funds is Nov. 24.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has partnered with the state and the Small Business Association to award the funds for flooding recovery.

President Barack Obama last month signed a disaster declaration for Michigan. The cost to clean up and repair the flood damage is estimated at more than $1.1 billion.
