Residents, Business Owners Get Extension To Apply For Federal Money To Repair Storm Damage

storm damageFederal officials have extended the deadline for state residents and business owners seeking disaster aid for problems stemming from severe floods earlier this year. Applications to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the state Office of Emergency Management must be received by close-of-business on July 1. Assistance includes grants for home repairs and low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses. Fifteen of New Jersey’s 21 counties were declared federal disaster areas after torrential rains soaked the Garden State in late March.

People who sustained losses can register with FEMA by calling 800-621-FEMA or on the Web at: www.disasterassistance.gov, according to The Associated Press.
