FEMA and SBA financial assistance crosses $3M

The following information was supplied by FEMA.

More than $3.7 million in federal assistance has been provided by FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to support disaster recovery since the presidential declaration following the March 14 storms.

Homeowners and renters whose homes and property were damaged by the storms, and who still need to apply for federal assistance, have until July 1, 2024, to do so.

As of May 31, Ohio’s recovery assistance includes:

More than $2.4 million in FEMA’s Individual and Households Program (IHP) grants awarded to eligible homeowners and renters in eleven Ohio counties. These grants help pay for uninsured and underinsured losses and storm-related damage, including:

More than $1.5 million in FEMA housing grants to help pay for home repair, home replacement and rental assistance for temporary housing.

More than $951,000 in Other Needs Assistance grants to help pay for personal property replacement and other serious storm-related needs—such as moving and storage fees, transportation, childcare, and medical and dental expenses.
