$6.6 million will go to the state of North Dakota --- of that $6.6 million, 80 percent or $5.2 million is expected to go to Ward County.

The new round of CDBG money is different in that it can be used for home acquisition outside the floodplain.

At the end of last year, Congress passed disaster assistance legislation that included additional CDBG funding for 2011 disasters through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
