FEMA’s Sandy Disaster Assistance Deadline Extended


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced this week that it has extended the deadline to register for disaster assistance in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.  The new deadline is March 1.

The registration, which was supposed to end Wednesday, January 30, was extended to give storm survivors another month to register with the FEMA for federal aid. The extension was prompted by a request from New Jersey officials, according to FEMA.

More than 57,500 New Jersey residents so far have been approved for help through FEMA’s individual assistance program, the report said.

Saturday hours for New Jersey disaster recovery centers will change to 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday the hours will remain 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
