AMITE, LA (WVUE) -

Tangipahoa Parish President Robby Miller reminds survivors of the August flood event that Monday, Nov. 14 is the deadline to register for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Miller said residents may register with FEMA by going online with any computer, smartphone or tablet to DisasterAssistance.gov, calling the FEMA helpline at 800-621-3362, or downloading the FEMA mobile app. Survivors who use a TTY may call 800-462-7585 to register. Survivors can also register for assistance at any FEMA disaster recovery center. 

FEMA assistance for homeowners and renters may include grants for rent, temporary housing and home repair to their primary residence, as well as other serious disaster-related needs, such as medical and dental expenses or funeral and burial costs.

Survivors should also be sure to submit their disaster loan application to the U.S. Small Business Administration by Nov.14. Submitting a loan application does not imply acceptance of a loan, but it is a necessary step to being considered for other forms of disaster assistance.

For more information, applicants may contact SBA's Disaster Assistance Customer Service Center by calling 800-659-2955.
