ROE Process Reopened In Coastal Counties

If you missed the deadline to sign a Right of Entry form to have your property cleared, there's good news from FEMA. The ROE process has been reopened at the urging of local leaders.

This means homeowners and business owners who have not signed Right of Entry forms to have their storm destroyed property cleared have a little more time. The new deadline for signing ROEs in Hancock, Harrison and Jackson Counties is June 15th.

Your property must meet FEMA's requirements for demolition. For example, it must be structurally unsound and pose a threat to public health.

The extension could benefit as many as 3,000 homeowners in Hancock County alone. Leaders there say many people who've been out of the area needed more time to make arrangements.

If you or someone you know needs to sign an Right of Entry form, contact your city or county offices.
