Updates 

  • We were awarded a FEMA HMGP in the amount of $772,275 with a Township match of $257,425, totaling $1,029,700.  At the time the grant was submitted the long term project was not designed but the estimated project cost was $1.3 million, this grant award was based off of that estimate.  We know believe the project cost will be closer to $1.65 million, now that more of the project design has been completed.  We will have an opportunity to request additional funds from FEMA to assist with the added costs. 
  • The Township Board formally accepted the grant at their July 26, 2021 Board Meeting.
  • The acceptance of the FEMA Grant will not affect the timeline as the Drain Office has authorized Prein & Newhof to continue designing the project. 
  • The Task Force met on July 22, 2021.  The summary can be found here
