More flood relief is on its way to Wisconsin.
The state will receive an additional $19 million in emergency funding from U.S. Housing and Urban Development. The money will be used to help the state recover from job losses, infrastructure damages, and tourism losses as a result of the June flooding.
The floods resulted in 31 counties being declared disaster areas. HUD had already awarded the state $5 million in funding, on top of other federal assistance.
Governor Doyle says the additional funding will help families and businesses recover from the worst flooding in the state's history.
