The Federal Emergency Management Agency has awarded a $6.76 million contract to a Holmes County business to supply temporary housing for Louisiana flood victims.
U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran said in a news release Lexington Homes, Inc. was awarded the fixed-price contract to construct and deliver 155 manufactured homes, which will be used to support flood disaster recovery efforts in Louisiana.
Severe storms and flooding in August led to a federal emergency designation for 22 parishes.
Lexington Homes is one of seven builders to compete successfully for this indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract, which includes four option years.
