When FEMA originally denied individual flood-disaster aid for Northland residents, Governor Mark Dayton formally appealed their decision.  It appears the appeal was in vain as it has been officially denied.

Our partners at The Northland's NewsCenter are reporting that in a letter to the Governor on Friday, FEMA reaffirms the original findings that the damage to homes in the floods is not of the severity and magnitude to warrant individual help.

I wonder what exactly they are looking for that would warrant aid?  It looks like the Twin Ports Region Long Term Flood Relief fund is the last beacon of hope for individual aid.
