The University of Iowa will receive a total of about $106 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to assist in the restoration of the Hancher Voxman Clapp Building and Art Building East. Both buildings sustained heavy damage during the 2008 flood.
“This is exciting news from our state and federal elected leaders,” said University of Iowa President Sally Mason. “It is the result of much hard work and coordination by the Iowa Office of Homeland Security, FEMA, and many university staff members.”
Hancher Voxman Clapp was awarded $74,218,831 and Art Building East was awarded $32,547,414 for permanent relocation and improvements.
