Kentucky has received a $1.6 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide long-term recovery assistance to residents of the Kentucky counties hit hardest by the March tornadoes.
Governor Steve Beshear stated “Our statewide efforts to help these communities recover have included a wide range of activities from clearing debris to rebuilding local infrastructure.
The grant will provide long-term recovery disaster case management services to residents of Grant, Johnson, Kenton, Laurel, Lawrence, Magoffin, Martin, Menifee, Morgan and Wolfe counties.
Services will be available for 18 months with the Kentucky Department for Aging and Independent Living, housed within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, to administer the grant.
