Federal funding heading to Superior to assist in Marshall fire damage

Communities impacted by the Marshall fire will receive $390,000 in federal funding.

Funding will go to Superior to help with damages sustained during the fire, specifically restoring stormwater infrastructure. The bill also includes other wildfire response initiatives, a pay raise for federal wildland firefighters and investments in collaborative forest programs.

U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse, D-Lafayette, announced Monday that the Biden-Harris administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture are making investments to help communities recover from and prepare for natural disasters.

“The damage Superior sustained in the Marshall fire was vast and the economic consequences of that damage continues to impact our town. We are incredibly grateful to Congressman Neguse for his continued support to aid fire-impacted communities like Superior as we rebuild and recover,” Superior Mayor Mark Lacis said in the press release.
