Individual Storm/Flooding Assistance Made Available through FEMA

(ENEWSPF)— The head of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced in October that federal disaster aid in the form of Individual Assistance (IA) has been made available for Cook County, Illinois to supplement state and local reco- very efforts in the area struck by severe storms and flooding during the period of September 13, 2008, and continuing.

FEMA Administrator David Paulison said the assistance was authorized under a major disaster declaration issued for the state by President Bush.  The President’s action makes federal funding available to affected individuals in Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, LaSalle, and Will counties.

Cook County residents and business owners who sustained losses can begin applying for individual assistance immediately by either registering online at www.fema.gov or by calling 1-800-621-3362 or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY) for the hearing and speech impaired.  These toll-free telephone numbers will operate 24-hours a day, seven days a week, until further notice.
