disaster assistance

Survivors of the October wildfires may still be able to qualify for disaster assistance even if they receive a letter from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) saying they are not eligible. 

Often it’s a matter of needing to submit more information so FEMA or SBA can continue processing the application. Examples of missing documentation might include an insurance settlement letter, proof of residency or ownership of a damaged property, or simply that the applicant did not sign the required documents. 

Survivors of the October 2017 wildfires have one week left to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for disaster assistance and to apply for a low-interest disaster loan from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). 

The deadline for both is Dec. 11, 2017 for those with losses. 

Residents recovering from the October 2017 fires in California have less than two weeks left to register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for disaster assistance. The last day to register is Dec. 11, 2017.
