With all the different programs and information being released about FEMA assistance for severe weather damages, it can be confusing navigating the process. But Nikki Gaskins with FEMA says there are two vital steps to take before you do anything else. The first is to start with your insurance company.
The next step is to register by visiting www.disasterassistance.gov or calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362.)
September 9th is the tentative registration deadline. Assistance is available for home repairs, rental assistance, disaster-related unemployment, damages to businesses, and more.
