FEMA Aid Available For Sandy Damage


I wanted to inform you that you can apply for disaster assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for damages sustained during Hurricane Sandy.


According to FEMA, federal disaster assistance includes grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.


You can apply for disaster assistance by registering through FEMA at or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA.  According to FEMA, the toll-free number will operate between 7:00 am to 10:00 pm seven days a week until further notice.
