FEMA Assistance Van at Town Hall Sunday, Monday
A FEMA Individual Assistance Van will be at Huntington Town Hall on Sunday and Monday to offer advice and help homeowners determine if they are eligible for Hurricane Sandy disaster assistance.
The van will be at the Jackson Avenue side of Town Hall, which is located at 100 Main Street, Huntington, until 7 p.m. Sunday and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday.
FEMA’s website defines disaster assistance as “financial or direct assistance to individuals and families whose property has been damaged or destroyed as a result of a federally-declared disaster, and whose losses are not covered by insurance. It is meant to help you with critical expenses that cannot be covered in other ways. This assistance is not intended to restore your damaged property to its condition before the disaster.”
FEMA suggests that before visiting the van, homeowners visit the website www.disasterassistance.gov to learn about the various types of aid available and basic eligibility guidelines.
