FUNDS FOR FLOOD SURVIVORS NOW AT $600 THOUSAND AND GROWING

CLINTON, Miss. – Federal assistance approved for people in 14 Mississippi counties that were declared a major disaster area by the president following the historic flooding of the Mississippi River and its tributaries now totals $592,544, and is expected to grow rapidly as flood waters recede. While many recovery efforts along the Mississippi River are held back by the heavy flooding, state and federal disaster officials are primed and ready to speed work as soon as water levels go down.

The counties in which people are eligible to apply for state and federal help are listed below along with the amount of assistance approved to date for each county.

Many forms of federal assistance are available, but people must first register by dialing 800-621-FEMA (3362) seven days a week between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. or TTY 800-462-7585 for people with speech or hearing impairment. An application can also be made on FEMA’s website, www.disasterassistance.gov at any time. A person can also track the status of an application on that site.

Here is a summary through Wednesday, May 25, of all federal assistance to individuals in counties affected by the flooding that began May 3, 2011, and continues.

$592,544 in total housing and personal needs has been approved. Of that amount, $589,914 has been approved for housing expenses, including temporary rental assistance, home repair costs and assistance toward replacing destroyed homes. $2,630 has been approved as “Other Needs Assistance” to cover essential disaster-related needs, such as medical and dental expenses and lost personal possessions. 902 Home Loan applications have been issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

2,947 applicants have registered with FEMA for some form of disaster assistance. 544 visits have been made at Disaster Recovery Centers operated jointly by FEMA and the state of Mississippi. 1,409 home inspections to confirm disaster damage have been completed. Teams of state and FEMA Community Relations field specialists have distributed more than 16,155 flyers and worked in the affected counties to help identify and assist disaster survivors.
