Bureaucracy is finally starting to catch up with the storm, as Grimes County has found another ally in the relief effort in the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
FEMA’s John Mills tells Navasota News it may also assist local governments in the clearing of brush from the streets. But unfortunately residents who’s homes were damaged by the storms are on their own, because, as Mills reports, Grimes isn’t on the list of counties eligible for individual assistance.
Local Emergency Management Coordinator David Lilly explains that’s because there’s a minimum amount of total damages received by individual property owners that has to be met, to which we didn’t get close.
But he insists you should still report your damages to FEMA to hopefully, make federal relief funds easier to access in the future
