UCC Commits to Long-Term Flooding Recovery
Nearly three months after a bomb cyclone hit the central Midwest, communities in Iowa and Nebraska are still cleaning up and looking to move forward. The floodwaters not only destroyed homes, businesses, and farmland, but also infrastructure such as roads, bridges, railways, and water lines. Rebuilding will cost  hundreds of millions of dollars  and  the larger economic effects  will be felt beyond the region for some time.

Local UCC churches, with the support of The  UCC’s National Disaster Ministry  (NDM), have pitched in to provide help with clean-up, warm meals, and a loving presence for people who may have lost everything. The NDM provides both short-term assistance and long-term recovery support through monetary donations, volunteer and supply coordination, and prayer. The NDM, in collaboration with local Disaster Ministry Coordinator  Rev. Brice Hughes , has sent five Solidarity Grants totaling $15,000 to churches responding to this disaster.
