After Floods, Huslia Earmarked $356,000 In Federal Funds

More than $270,000 in federal funds will help relocate five homes in Huslia following flooding and erosion on the Koyukuk River last month.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development authorized the money under its “imminent threat” funds. It supplements another $85,000 in funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to cover the full $356,000 cost.

The Athabascan village of 320 people is located about 250 miles west of Fairbanks.
