December 2 is final day for flood victims to apply for FEMA assistance

DENVER - If your home or business was damaged in the September flooding, today is your final day to register for help from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

Survivors who register may be eligible for federal grants to help cover various disaster-related expenses, including rent, essential home repairs, personal property losses and other disaster-related needs not covered by insurance, FEMA said.

The extension is for all 11 Colorado counties designated for Federal Individual Assistance: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Clear Creek, El Paso, Fremont, Jefferson, Larimer, Logan, Morgan and Weld.

Small business owners do not have to accept a disaster loan, but completing and returning the application may open the door to other forms of assistance, such as additional FEMA grants, officials said.

To register with FEMA, call 1-800-621-3362 before 8 p.m. MST on December 2, or register online at DisasterAssistance.gov.
