Government partially funds Isabel repairs

The University will receive about $70,000 from the federal government to help cover costs associated with Hurricane Isabel in September, according to a University press release.

The campus incurred $1.45 million in damages from the hurricane.

The District was declared a federal disaster area, making GW eligible for federal assistance.

GW spent $30,000 to house Mount Vernon Campus residents in local hotels when the campus lost power. The majority of damage on campus during the storm came from fallen trees.
