Critical update on Federal Government disaster assistance for Irene

09/01/2011: Critical update on Federal Government disaster assistance for Irene

Washington DC:  Critical update on Federal Government disaster assistance for Irene. Yesterday, President Obama issued a Major Disaster Declaration for damage resulting from Hurricane Irene.  These programs offer grants and loans to individuals and loans to businesses.

The Federal Government has set up a website that allows people to apply online for assistance: http://www.disasterassistance.gov.

This website consolidates the application process across several Federal agencies, including FEMA and the Small Business Administration. The website also reduces the number of forms you will ultimately have to fill out, shortens the time it takes to apply and allows you to check the progress of your applications online.

If you want to apply by phone rather than the Internet, you can call 1-800-621-FEMA (1-800-621-3362).

While the damage suffered is devastating, but we know we can rebound quickly.  Federal aid will play a crucial role in our recovery, so please take advantage of the resources available.
