Lubbock County approved for Federal assistance with flood damage

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Help is on the way to assist with flood recovery in Lubbock County, although it does not include everything the county asked for.

Lubbock City and County officials got word from Governor Perry Friday afternoon that both have been added to the disaster declaration, following the heavy rain caused by Hurricane Alex. This means that the city and county will be reimbursed up to 75-percent for response costs and repairs.

The county learned that the feds will help with 75-percent of business property damage, 75-percent of the county's property damage, and 75-percent of the county's administrative costs.

However, FEMA did not approve assistance for Lubbock homeowners. They said local inspections found that residents did not report enough monetary damage to their property.

Mayor Tom Martin is disappointed individuals will not get that help from FEMA, but says local leaders already have a plan in mind. "We have another grant that we are applying for through the county to see if there is money for low interest loans for businesses and homeowners that need to make repairs," said Martin.
