LITTLE FALLS - FEMA says it will use $365,000 in funds to elevate five flooding-prone homes in Little Falls.

FEMA says the homes that were chosen for the pilot program, on Louis and William streets, had to meet eligibility requirements based on their flood losses.

Neighbors say they'd like to see the program extended to everyone in the neighborhood.

If the plan works, it would be a win-win for the town and homeowners. Families would stay because they'd be less worried about flood damage, and the town could hang on to more of its tax base.
