If you are currently displaced or in an unsafe living situation as a direct result of the recent flood in Carbon County, funds are available through the Carbon County Disaster Relief Fund to help. We are accepting applications for up to $3,000, if that amount will allow you to safely return to your home and/or mitigate a serious unhealthy situation in your home. If your immediate need is greater than $3,000 please complete the application and share with us the amount needed to allow you to safely return to your home. This will help us better assess the continued needs across the county.
Every community, Fromberg, Edgar, Luther, Joliet, Roberts, Bridger, Belfry, Roscoe and Red Lodge has been affected by the flooding on Rock Creek, the Clarks Fork River, and many irrigation ditches. Loss of bridges, roads, homes, personal items, water, power, internet, and business closures is just part of what we are experiencing. As our communities work hard to stabilize the immediate flooding impacts and shift into recovery efforts, the need for financial resources is critical.
There are many ways you can lend a hand during this time.
