STATEHOUSE – “I congratulate Morgan County’s local leaders as well as the Indiana Department of Homeland Security for being able to secure these funds. By removing these flood damaged properties, families can find relief as communities start rebuilding and recovering from the storm.”

“Flood damage has had a devastating effect in our community. It has caused many of our neighbors to experience financial and emotional strain while creating enormous burden for local leaders during the relief efforts and in the aftermath. I am pleased that we are able to ease some of these burdens, so we can now focus on moving forward.”
