The University of Iowa received $6.7 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for the demolition of three buildings damaged in the 2008 flood, UI officials said.

UI spokesman Tom Moore said funds received from FEMA for demolition are separate from the construction of new buildings.

Around $5 million will go toward the demolition of Hancher and the Voxman Music Building, and $1.7 million will go toward the Art Building demolition.
