Let’s Grow Clay
Before the June 23
2016 Great Wash Out, for decades, families in County Clay tended to and
grew gardens. By doing so, nutritious home grown foods were canned and
supplied the home with year round meals. Life changed after the flood.
To return the county to food production self sufficiency, the Greater Clay Long Term Recovery Committee is funding a 2017 home garden revival called, Let’s Grow Clay.
The program funding includes: tilling small garden plots; providing seeds and seed potatoes; and purchasing basic tools to tend the land. Greater Clay funding is in place for the first 25 families that apply by the May 1, 2017 , 4pm, deadline. Priority will be given to Clay County flood survivors.
To apply for this program call the Greater Clay Long Term Recovery Committee at 304 587 4700 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org . Be sure to include the size of your garden spot when applying. Thank you and Let’s Grow Clay.

FLOODED HOME DEMOLITION PROGRAM RE-OPENS
Homeowners whose residences
were damaged beyond repair and left uninhabitable by June’s severe storms,
floods, mudslides and landslides that affected large swaths of central
and southern West Virginia have to apply for demolition and debris removal
programs on their private property.
An eligible applicant’s debris removal from private property can be funded, providing that county officials determine that disaster-generated debris on private property in the designated area constitutes:
• immediate threats to life, public health, and safety
• immediate threats of significant damage to improved public or private property
• immediate threat to the economic recovery of the affected community and poses a detriment to the community-at-large
Homeowners in the county of Clay can contact their county emergency management office for assistance.
Residents whose homes have been left uninhabitable by the disaster can contact their emergency management office at the following number: County Phone Clay: 304-587-2849
It is not necessary for applicants to have previously applied for disaster assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Inspections for the Private Property Debris Removal and Demolition programs are conducted by the individual counties with demolitions contracted out by the state using funds from the state and FEMA.
It is advised that property owners do NOT demolish their own structures if they wish to participate in any Hazard Mitigation projects as that would make them ineligible for Mitigation funding. 3-2-17
