FEMA deadline approaching for St. Louis County homeowners to register for assistance

St. Louis county homeowners or renters who were impacted by the April 22nd tornado or storms must register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency this week to learn if they qualify for grant assistance.

 The deadline to register with FEMA is Friday, July 29th.

 Andrea Jackson-Jennings is the Director of Human Services for St. Louis County. She says, so far, FEMA has taken nearly 1500 registrations in St. Louis County and provided more than $971,000 in grants to individuals and families.

 “These grants are for home repairs, personal property and other disaster related expenses not covered by their insurance,” said Jackson-Jennings.

 Homeowners and renters can register online at www.disasterassistance.gov, or call 1-800-621-3362.
