Governor Becky Skillman announced yesterday that 13 Indiana communities will receive a total of $10,876,512 for storm water infrastructure projects.  The grants are funded by an appropriation for disaster recovery efforts from the federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, given to alleviate damages from several large storms in 2008 that caused flooding.  Included in the 13 communities receiving these grants are the two Starke County communities of North Judson and Knox.

North Judson will receive a total of $837,095 while Knox will receive a total of $736,553.  The program is adminstered in Indiana by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA).
