Large grant will help Duluth recover from flash floods

| No Comments

The Star Tribune reported that Duluth community leaders announced Sunday that a $500,000 grant will be in place to help victims of the floods last June.

The Star Tribune reported that 1,700 homes were damaged from the flash floods, and that this grant is the largest donation to help recovery efforts so far.

The money will be provided by the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation of Eden Prairie, according to the Duluth News Tribune, and will be distributed to three areas: supporting Lutheran Social Service's disaster case managers, addressing unmet financial needs and assisting nonprofits in the area that were affected by the floods.

The Duluth News Tribune said that a Habitat for Humanity group from Concordia College in Moorhead was responsible for much of the recent clean-up and aid in the area, something that the new grant will allow to continue.
