MADISON, Wis. -

Parts of southwestern Wisconsin will get a portion of $1.9 million to help recovery efforts from damage caused by June flooding.

Severe storms dumped heavy rains and caused flash flooding in the area creating substantial damage.

“Wisconsin communities were hit hard with storms and flooding this year. These funds will help Wisconsin residents and communities repair storm-damaged homes,” said Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch.

Residents will be able to use the money to either fix their homes or demolish their damaged homes and buy new ones, according to a release. Allocated money could also go toward fixing publicly-owned utility systems, streets, sidewalks and community centers.

The city of Boscobel will receive $500,000; Crawford County will receive $408,500; Grant County will receive $495,000; and Iowa County will receive $499,999, according to the release.
