Great news that should help speed up some of the rebuilding that is still taking place since the summer flooding in the Northland.

Non-profits and individuals will both benefit from a $500,000 flood relief grant.  According the Northland’s NewsCenter, the money is donated by the Margaret A. Cargil Foundation and will be distributed among three areas.

It will go to Lutheran Social Service’s disaster case managers, who serve as third party advocates helping clients make recovery plans suited to their needs.

It will help the Long-term Recovery Committee address unmet needs of the Northland community.

Non-profit organizatoins impacted by the flood will also receive the grant money.

The president of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation says the grant is the largest single outside donation and expects recovery efforts to surge forward, especially with winter approaching.
