Mayor Henry’s statement about FEMA, IDHS grants
Funds to voluntarily purchase homes in Junk Ditch

“The announcement about $1.5 million in grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security is great news for the City of Fort Wayne and residents in the Junk Ditch area. City staff in cooperation with the Maumee River Basin Commission worked closely with FEMA and IDHS staff to make this happen.

“This money will fund voluntary buy-outs of properties and continues my administration’s goal of protecting and removing homes and families from Fort Wayne’s floodplain. Homeowners in this area have experienced repeated flooding, and this grant will give them the opportunity to never have to worry about rising waters again.”
