More than 135-thousand Floridians have gotten the federal aid since the hurricane came ashore in Southwest Florida last October. The FEMA assistance centers help people fill out disaster loan applications and try to weed through the bureaucratic red tape. So, far residents have received almost 300-million dollars. FEMA spokeswoman Denise Everhart says there’s still time to sign up for help...but time is running out.
“If you haven’t registered, get it done now. Get into a disaster recovery center if you have questions and need one-on-one personal contact. At this point in time, these disaster recovery centers have been open over three months and it is time to close them.”
The FEMA centers will begin to close in Collier County on Friday; in Lee and Hendry Counties, the centers shut down January 18th.
