Families and businesses in Grimes and eleven other Texas Counties affected by April’s flooding will get a cut of at least $81 Million in federal relief funds. And the Federal Emergency Management Agency promises as more people qualify, more money will be made available.
FEMA’s Sharron Karr says the Agency is currently trying to contact every resident who suffered damage from April’s storms, so it can help them. But it can’t know who they are, or what their needs are until they register.
And to assist in getting started with the process, she gives Navasota news a list of three things you will need.
- Proof of Ownership of the damaged property
- Government ID
- Proof of residency of said damaged property
If you don’t sign-up before the deadline, and then find some flood or storm damage later, she warns that FEMA won’t be able to help you.
So, no matter how small your damage is, Karr urges you to get registered before the Friday after next, June 24th, by going to www.disasterassistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-3362
