FEMA deadline extended

Micaela Cashman

If you were affected by the massive flood this summer, there is still time to apply for federal aid.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency and the state of Iowa decided to extend the deadline to register for aid after a large amount of applications came in last week. The new deadline is Nov. 12.

FEMA money can go toward temporary housing, housing repairs and replacements along with cleanup items, vehicle repairs and replacements, work and education replacements, legal services and crisis counseling.

To apply for aid, you must have:

• Your Social Security number

• Current and pre-disaster addresses

• Insurance information

• Total household annual income

• A list of losses or damages caused by the flood.

Applying for aid is free. For more information, visit www.fema.gov and www.disasterassistance.gov.
