HUD allocates nearly $120 million for April 27 recovery

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan Wednesday announced the allocation of nearly $120 million throughout the State of Alabama to help communities in their recovery efforts from severe storms, tornadoes and flooding in 2011. 

The grants, part of $514 million allocated among nine states nationwide, are provided through HUD's Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program to support long-term disaster recovery efforts in areas with the greatest extent of ‘unmet need.'

HUD will allocate $49,157,000 to the State of Alabama to support long-term disaster recovery throughout the hardest-hit areas. 

HUD will also provide $43,932,000 directly to City of Tuscaloosa; $17,497,000 to the City of Birmingham; and $9,142,000 to Jefferson County to recover from severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding in the Spring of 2011. 

The funding announced today supplements the nearly $56 million HUD allocated throughout Alabama in January of 2012.

    Unless it’s Garfield, an 80 pound cat is probably not something you’d want to find wandering across your property. But when you live in Arizona, it happens. Last week, Tony Bonifasi posted a video to our AZ Family Facebook page of a mountain lion caught on a security camera Saturday, October 14, just outside of Flagstaff.

    Traveling the world has been a goal of mine since I was a little girl.

    So in my 20s, I started my international adventures in Italy and every few years I pick a new place to go.

    October has been off to a unseasonably warm and quiet start this year.  Most years, it’s a pretty uneventful month when it comes to stormy weather in our state.  October 2010 was a big exception, when we saw the worst tornado outbreak in state history.
