Recertify to be Eligible for Continued Rental Help from FEMA
FEMA urges households currently receiving rental assistance because of damage from the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding from April 28th through May 5th to recertify for rental assistance. If your household is getting rental assistance from FEMA and repairs to your home are taking longer than expected, you need to provide the necessary paperwork to recertify for continued rental help. Residents of Baldwin, Blount, DeKalb, Etowah, Jefferson, Lee, Limestone, Mobile or Tuscaloosa counties who suffered storm damage during the period April 28 through May 5 should apply for assistance by registering online at DisasterAssistance.gov. The deadline to register for FEMA assistance is Tuesday, July 15, 2014.
