Nearly five years since portions of the County of Grimes were devastated by the Dyer Mills fire, some significant federal funds may now be available to help pay for the after-effects.
County Emergency Management Coordinator David Lilly told a recent meeting of the local emergency planning committee, the new grant specifically targets disasters between 2011 and 2013.
If approved, he reported Grimes could receive as much as $13,000,000. But the initial application must be submitted by the end of this month.
And since it’s a 2015 grant, Lilly adds, if Grimes is successful, we should know about it soon. As just as soon as we do, of course, you’ll hear about it, right here on Navasota News.
