From Dane and Rock County Emergency Management:
Dane and Rock County residents affected by the Summer, 2008 flooding may still be eligible for state assistance.
This may include flood related mold, repairs, or clean-up issues. The Wisconsin Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) Region 3 Long-Term Recovery Committee is coordinating this assistance.
If you have unmet needs from the Summer 2008 flooding, please call the United Way 2-1-1 by simply dialing 2-1-1 or 608 / 246-HELP (4357). The deadline is June 1, 2009. Community Resource Specialists will relay your contact information to a VOAD case manager who will then contact you. The case manager will personally work with you to identify resources that can help you address your flood related needs.
United Way 2-1-1 is a referral and information service which connects people with resources in their community. This is a free and confidential service. Only information the caller intends to have shared will be collected.
