County eligible for winter storm grants

Allen County will receive federal grants for the severe winter storm that severely affected much of the state in January, Gov. Mike Pence's office announced Tuesday.

That makes 29 counties that will receive assistance for the Jan. 5-9 snowstorm.

Allen County is now eligible for FEMA public assistance and snow assistance grants, which pay 75 percent of eligible expenses for damage to roads, bridges, utilities, debris removal, buildings' contents and equipment, water control facilities, parks and recreational areas, as well as emergency protective measures such as traffic control and rescue operations.

Allen County's snow assistance grant will cover all costs associated with snow removal for the 48-hour period with the highest costs.
