Residents have until Nov. 29 to register for FEMA assistance
Homeowners, renters and business owners in the 26 parishes designated for Individual Assistance may continue to register with FEMA for assistance and report their uninsured or underinsured property damage or destruction from the storm.
The normal registration period is 60 days from the date of the disaster declaration, but FEMA has approved a 30-day extension. Also extended is the deadline for survivors to apply for low-interest, long-term disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration.
"Because some parishes were added to the original declaration within the last few weeks, the state asked for, and FEMA approved, a registration deadline extension," said Federal Coordinating Officer Gerard M. Stolar. "We urge survivors who have not yet registered to do so right away."
Survivors can register online at www.disasterassistance.gov or via smartphone at m.fema.gov. Applicants may also call 1-800-621-3362 or (TTY) 1-800-462-7585. If you use 711 Relay or Video Relay Services call 1-800-621-3362. The toll-free telephone numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
Individual Assistance has been made available in 26 parishes in Louisiana: Allen, Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Iberville, Jefferson, Lafourche, Livingston, Morehouse, Orleans, Plaquemines, Pointe Coupee, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. Helena, St. James, St. John, St. Martin, St. Mary, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, Washington, West Baton Rouge and West Feliciana.
