CONCORD, N.H. (AP) – Gov. John Lynch has signed legislation to help communities rebuild from damage suffered in the October floods.

With his signature, the bill becomes law, designating $2.9 million for the towns. The measure appropriates money from the state’s general fund to match federal disaster relief money going to the towns.

The state will contribute $1 for every $3 of federal money, minus an initial amount paid by the town.

The Department of Safety’s Bureau of Emergency Management will be in charge of distributing the money to qualifying groups.
