A federal agency is offering assistance to people driven from their homes by flooding.
The disaster in Montana declared by President Barack Obama opens the door for U. S. Housing and Urban Development to offer foreclosure relief and other assistance to homeowners and low-income renters, said Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont.
“This is just one more way we can circle up around the folks most impacted by severe flooding across the state, ” Baucus said in a press release. “There are still hundreds of people who are unable to return to their homes because of this disaster. This is one resource to ease the heavy burden facing our flood victims. I’m going to keep looking under every rock for additional ways to support families and businesses most severely impacted by this disaster. ”
