Through the State Emergency Relief program, families and individuals who are experiencing extreme hardship, or emergencies that threaten health and safety, will receive assistance. The program helps those in need of home repairs sustained by recent floods.

“Flooding can be devastating – especially to households that lack the resources to fix unsafe conditions that can affect their families,” said Lewis Roubal, MDHHS chief deputy director for opportunity. “MDHHS is committed to assisting these families in paying for home repairs that are necessary due to flooding or other reasons.”
