Mohawk Valley flood victims can get grant help

By WKTV News

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Victims of flooding in New York's Mohawk Valley can apply for state help at several locations over the next few days.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says "flood assistance teams" will be available today, Monday and Tuesday in Oneida, Herkimer, Madison and Montgomery counties, all hard hit by last month's rains.

They'll be at the New Hartford Volunteer Fire Department, Herkimer County Community College, the Oneida Recreation Center and the Fort Plain Senior Center.

Homeowners, small businesses, renters, and farmers may be eligible for grants ranging from $31,900 to $50,000 to cover uninsured flood damage.

More information and application forms will be available at the state office of Homes and Community Renewal website.

Head to Herkimer County Community College starting at Noon.
