(INDIANAPOLIS) - Governor Mitch Daniels announced Indiana will receive a $2.4 million national emergency grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.

The grant will provide temporary employment for up to 200 workers dislocated by recent severe weather and flooding.

The funds will be used to provide temporary jobs to assist in recovery efforts, including the clean-up, demolition, repair, renovation, and reconstruction of destroyed buildings and property in affected communities.

Funds will also be used to help low-income families with food, clothing, and shelter.
