SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The second denial of FEMA funding for the University of Iowa’s new Museum of Art was no surprise to one UI official.

UI General Counsel Carroll Reasoner she was “not surprised” by FEMA’s Jan. 28 denial while addressing the state Board of Regents Thursday.

FEMA ruled the UI Museum of Art ineligible for replacement funding, according to a UI press release.

But UI officials will continue to seek FEMA funds, Reasoner said, with plans to take their appeal to Washington D.C.

Officials will have 60 days to file their compliant on the ruling, Reasoner said.
