Midwest Flood Disaster Assistance May Be Included Second Supplemental Spending Bill
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - National Trust for Historic Preservation, flood assistance, endangered damaged historic properties

The National Trust and its preservation partners have being laying the groundwork for a possible disaster assistance package for the affected flood states in the Midwest — Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri and Indiana — to address the damage to historic properties in these states. Preliminary meetings between Iowa preservationists with Sen. Tom Harkin (DIA), the chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee, revealed that there is little chance for including flood disaster assistance in the current war supplemental bill pending before Congress, but there might be an opportunity for a second supplemental/disaster assistance bill to aid historic properties located along the Mississippi River later this session.

At this point, regional and local officials and preservationists are taking the lead in identifying the historic properties that may need assistance and calculating damage assessments in advance of assembling a request for disaster assistance funding for a second supplemental bill.
