Individual Assistance Now Available Until June 19 for Nebraskans

LINCOLN, Neb. – The following is from the Federal Emergency Management Agency:

“At the request of Governor Pete Ricketts, homeowners, renters and business owners in Nebraska counties designated for federal assistance now have until June 19 to register for federal assistance.

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster grants for qualified homeowners and renters may help pay for basic repairs to make a home habitable, provide temporary rental assistance, and provide assistance for serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance or other sources.

After registering for disaster assistance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), homeowners and renters may also be contacted by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to apply for a low-interest disaster loan. SBA disaster loans provide the largest source of long-term federal disaster recovery funds for survivors.”
