The federal emergency management agency is sending more than 52 million dollars to Kansas. It's all to help repair electrical facility systems damaged by December's winter storm.
The money will be distributed to 20 rural electric cooperatives and 24 municipal utilities around the state.
The funding is part of FEMA's public assistance program.
FEMA pays 75 percent of eligible costs for repair or replacement of damaged utilities... the state pays 10 percent and the local entity
pays 15 percent.
