HELENA- The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), has released new information about the number of Montanans applying for and receiving flood-relief assistance.
FEMA has approved over $2.8 million in federal aid to flood victims across the Treasure State so far, with the money being given out to more than 1,200 applicants.
In Lewis & Clark County, just over 100 applicants have received help totalling more than $183,000.
Chris McKniff of FEMA says that there is more money to be approved, and that they will soon be opening up a recovery center in Helena so people can continue to register in person or follow up with current claims.
Registration for assistance is currently available online.
