Somerset County Granted Individual Assistance From FEMA

Posted: Updated:

Somerset Co., Md. – A month and a half after Sandy hit Delmarva, Individual Assistance from FEMA has been authorized for Somerset County under President Obama's disaster declaration for Hurricane Sandy.

Homeowners and renters may be eligible for grants to help pay for temporary housing, home repairs and other disaster-related expenses, as well as low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. SBA disaster loans also are available to businesses of all sizes and to nonprofit organizations.

Residents and business owners in Somerset County can register for Individual Assistance online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling FEMA's toll-free registration number 800-621-FEMA (3362).  The TTY number is 800-462-7585.  Smartphone users can go to m.fema.gov.

Survivors who receive SBA disaster loan applications, after registering with FEMA, must complete and submit them to SBA to be considered for assistance that covers the repair or replacement of personal property, including vehicles.  Applicants who do not qualify for an SBA loan may be eligible to receive Other Needs Assistance grants for medical, dental and funeral expenses.
