REGISTER FOR DISASTER ASSISTANCE WITH FEMA
Monday, 17 October 2011

New Jersey residents who sustained damage from Hurricane Irene have only two more weeks to register for assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The deadline is Oct. 31, 2011.

“Two weeks may sound like plenty of time, but the 31st will be here before you know it,” said FEMA’s Federal Coordinating Officer William L. Vogel. “If you had damage and haven’t registered yet, please do so before it’s too late.”

Even if an insurance settlement has not yet been reached, individuals must register before the Oct. 31 deadline or the opportunity to be considered for federal assistance may be lost. Though FEMA will not duplicate insurance benefits, expenses not covered by insurance may be eligible for federal grants after the claim has been paid.

FEMA ASSISTANCE BASED ON LOSS & NEEDS
Wednesday, 14 September 2011

FAIRFILED, N.J. Residents of New Jersey now eligible for individual disaster assistance should know that the help they may receive will be based on their own unique circumstances and needs.

“While not everyone may qualify, our ultimate goal is for anyone who suffered damages from Hurricane Irene to receive the maximum assistance available,” said William L. Vogel, federal coordinating officer for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) disaster operations in New Jersey.

Disaster assistance to individuals is based on a number of factors, and FEMA specialists are trained to seek out and coordinate the eligible assistance from a number of sources.
