Questions and Answers About FEMA Disaster Assistance
KENTUCKY (WFIE) - The deadline to apply for disaster assistance for those impacted by the storms in Kentucky is Feb. 11, 2022.
FEMA officials have said that they have already approved $8.48 million in relief funds to survivors of the storms.
They recommend that most people apply for assistance in person.
That process has started to change.
12 of FEMA’s 17 disaster recovery centers in the area will now operate on a rotating schedule.
The remaining five will be fixed locations, but Public Information Officer Roberto Baltodano told 14 News that they hope the rotation will allow them to reach people who are more isolated.
“People with disabilities, individuals who were affected and may not have the means to get to a location, we’re bringing those locations closer to them,” he explained.
He also said that working through the process with a representative at their site is best because it allows for a more detailed consultation.
“We’re going to make sure that we walk them through that process, ask them questions to make sure they’re understanding it, and most importantly, guide them as to where to go next,” Baltodano said.
FEMA representatives have also been telling people what to do if certain applications are rejected.
The Disaster Recovery Centers and Mobile Registration Centers will be closed Thursday, Jan. 6, because of severe weather, but will reopen when it’s safe.
