Governor Mike Pence is seeking federal aid for damages caused by heavy rains and flooding earlier this year. The request involves 19 Indiana counties.
The severe conditions took place between June 7 and July 29. The money would come from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Public Assistance Program for local governments and nonprofits that provide "essential government services."
The counties involved are:
Adams, Allen, Benton, Brown, Clark, Fulton, Huntington, Jay, Jefferson, Jennings, Marshall, Newton, Pulaski, Scott, Vermillion, Wabash, Warren, Washington and Wells.
The Governor’s Office says the funding would cover 75 percent of eligible expenses for road, bridge, utility, building contents and equipment, water control facility, parks and recreational facility damage, as well as other emergency services provided during the severe weather.
