Governor Peter Shumlin says the state will receive a $2.4 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for recovery services for survivors of Tropical Storm Irene.

The funds will assist with unmet needs, including housing, social services and more.

The grant will be managed by the Vermont Agency of Human Services, which will contract with three Community Action agencies to hire 11 case managers through August of 2013.

Those case managers will work with the same clients from start to finish, identifying the assistance already received, what needs remain and what resources are available.

Those who still have Irene-related needs should call the 211 human services phone line.
