Residents in 10 Kentucky counties that were hard hit by tornadoes last March will receive long-term recovery assistance with the help of a $1.6 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Gov. Steve Beshear announced the grant Monday and said the funds would provide support for people to get back to normal.

The counties that will receive the services are Grant, Johnson, Kenton, Laurel, Lawrence, Magoffin, Martin, Menifee, Morgan and Wolfe.

Health and Family Services Secretary Audrey Tayse Haynes says the funds will make it possible for trained case managers to assist the people who suffered the most and help make sure they recover from the disaster.
