Today is last day for Mississippians to register with FEMA

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Mississippians affected by Hurricane Isaac have until midnight to register online and until 10 p.m. Wednesday to register by phone for federal disaster assistance and to apply for physical damage loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Any interested in registering can do so online by clicking disasterassistance.gov or m.fema.go with a smart phone or tablet. The online deadline is 12 a.m.

Those registering over the phone can call 800-621-3362, for TTY 800-462-7586 or 800-621-3362 for Video Relay Service. The registration deadline is 10 p.m.

According to a press release from the Federal Emergency Management Agency

Some 26,000 Mississippians have already registered with FEMA.

Disaster assistance may include rental payments for temporary housing for those whose homes are unlivable, grants for home repairs and replacement of essential household items not covered by insurance. There are grants to replace essential personal property and to help meet medical, dental, transportation and other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance or other federal, state or charitable aid programs.

The SBA provides low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, nonprofits and businesses of all sizes. While survivors are not required to accept a disaster loan, completing the SBA application is essential to receiving other assistance from FEMA.
