Money to help cover costs of family's new modular home on Hooper's Island

September 17, 2004|By Kathryn Hansen | Kathryn Hansen, Staff

Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele is scheduled to visit with the first Tropical Storm Isabel victims to receive a replacement modular home on Monday in Dorchester County.

Steele and state Department of Housing and Community Development officials are to present the Mowery family with a check to help cover the cost of their new home at 2512 Old House Point Road on Hooper's Island. The money comes from the $7.5 million Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. appropriated for the victims of the September 2003 storm.

The event is the last in a series of appearances by Steele on Monday. He is first scheduled to deliver the keynote address at the Maryland Workers Compensation Educational Association Conference in Ocean City.

After that, he plans to address students at the Drill Academy in Salisbury about the importance of education, followed by a $3 million grant announcement at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in Princess Anne.
