FEMA Extends Deadline For Isaac Aid

NEW ORLEANS (UPI) — The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended the deadline for applications for Hurricane Isaac aid in Louisiana.

Applications can now be submitted until Nov. 29, three months after Isaac hit the state, The (New Orleans) Times-Picayune reported.

“We requested this extension because several parishes were added to our disaster declaration weeks after Hurricane Isaac,” said Kevin Davis, head of the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness. “The state wanted to make sure everyone with damage had plenty of time to apply for FEMA aid. We know that some people who had real damage to their homes might not have applied for assistance yet and we encourage them to take advantage of this 30-day extension to register with FEMA so they can get the help that they need to fully recover from this storm.”

The storm damaged at least 59,000 homes in Louisiana, state officials say. Almost 200,000 Louisianans have applied for FEMA aid, and the agency has already approved $112.5 million in direct aid.
