Gov. Evers travels to Trempealeau to sign flood assistance bill for Wisconsin communities



Wisconsin Gov. Tony Eves signs flood relief bill in Trempealeau County on April 3, 2024.

Wisconsin’s governor took a trip to Trempealeau County on Wednesday to sign a bill to help communities deal with flooding.

Gov. Tony Evers signed a bill in Trempealeau calling for the creation of a pre-disaster grant program, which could give funding to cities and towns in preparation for potential floods.

The program would be organized by the Wisconsin Emergency Management agency.

The bill would allow grants of more than $200,000 to be made to local governments or nonprofit groups.

The money is aimed at helping flood-prone communities identify vulnerable locations and look at ways to improve a town’s ability to bounce back from a natural disaster.
