Santa Clara Pueblo to get federal aid after flood

SANTA CLARA PUEBLO, N.M. (KRQE) – Nearly $2 million in federal aid is going to the Santa Clara Pueblo.

It’s the first in a series of reimbursements from FEMA to aid in recovery of the Santa Clara canyon.

It will pay for costs associated with flood damages that occurred during the summer of 2012.

The flooding incident resulted in a major disaster declaration, not only for the pueblo of Santa Clara, but also for the Mescalero apache tribe and Lincoln, Sandoval and Los Alamos counties.

The same areas in the Santa Clara canyon have flooded twice since the 2012 declaration. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
