What’s up with a massive storm surge fund?
An emergency fund to support flood victims is looking for funding, as the city of Dallas continues to deal with the aftermath of a massive Super Bowl storm.
The funds aim to help flood victims, businesses, and businesses with flood damage.
The Dallas Flood Protection Fund (DFPB) has been in operation since May, when the DFPB launched an emergency fund aimed at helping flood victims.
The fund was intended to help residents and businesses affected by the Super Bowl blizzard, but the fund has since been used to help other flood victims as well.
The $2.7 million in funds were put up in January and are now up for grabs.
The money will be used to pay for basic necessities, such as gas and electricity, but will also be used for property damage and infrastructure costs, the DFB said in a press release.
“We want to make sure that the fund gets used to the fullest extent,” DFPP Director of Finance Scott Pomerantz said in the release.
DFPPB will work with other agencies, such the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Flood Insurance Program (TFIP), to assess the funds and make recommendations for how to use the funds to best support the flood victims and businesses impacted by the storm.
According to the press release, the funds were first established in 2018 and were designed to be used only after all other options have been exhausted.
Since then, more than $9 billion in disaster relief has been awarded to flood victims in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, according to the DDFP.
In addition to the flood fund, the city also has a storm water mitigation fund that will be spent on flood mitigation projects.
Pomerant said in his statement that the funds will be paid out by the Texas Commission on Local Flood Control (TCLFC), the city’s flood control authority.
He said the city will provide the funds as well, but declined to provide additional details.
The DFPBP was established in response to the Superstorm Sandy that devastated New York City in 2012.
It is currently in the process of setting up a Disaster Relief Fund, which is used to provide disaster relief for residents of flood-prone areas.
The city’s storm water and storm sewer system is also in need of repair, and there are concerns that a storm surge could cause flooding in the city.
The Texas Flood Protection Act requires flood-related funds to be paid to the federal government, and the state of Texas has been sued by New York for not paying up on the state’s $1.9 billion storm storm flood insurance fund.
