Press Release_The City of Wichita Falls has received documents from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Division of Emergency Management of the State of Texas for the award of the grant to purchase and remove properties that had more than 50% damage from the July 2007 flood.

38 structures are identified. The total project amount is $741,866.88, of which 25% or $185,446.72 will come from the City's General Fund. The following will be factors in the implementation of the program:
