Deadline to apply for FEMA assistence extended to Oct. 12


Vermont residents affected by July’s severe storms, flooding, mudslides and landslides now have until Oct. 12, 2023 to apply for FEMA assistance.

“This does not mean you should delay applying — the sooner you apply, the sooner FEMA can process your claim,” a news release stated.

Those with storm-caused expenses and live or own a business in Caledonia, Chittenden, Lamoille, Orange, Orleans, Rutland, Washington, Windham or Windsor County, FEMA assistance can provide grants and U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) loans for temporary housing, home repairs and other disaster-related needs.

To apply, visit DisasterAssistance.gov, download the FEMA app or call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362.
