Vt. to receive more US hazard mitigation money

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The state of Vermont is in line to receive up to an estimated $4 million to help reduce future flood damage.

The grants cover up to 75 percent of the costs associated with lessening the potential damage from a future flood.

Projects can include flood-proofing public buildings, replacing culverts, and riverbank stabilization. Other eligible projects include home or property buyouts and raising or moving structures.

Vermont Emergency Management Director Joe Flynn says his organization is encouraging towns to identify potential hazard mitigation sites in their communities and apply for funds.

Since Tropical Storm Irene, the state of Vermont has approved $38 million in projects to municipalities and other organizations.

The exact amount of money could be between $2 million and $4 million.
