|Disaster recovery center opening in Harrisonburg October 13|
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will open a disaster recovery center at the Catahoula Parish Courthouse in Harrisonburg on Monday, October 13.
FEMA Public Information Officer Ed Edahl said 654 individuals have already pre-registered for assistance.
A recovery center opened in Natchez this week. PIO Jody Correro said 125 applications for assistance had been filed by Adams County, Mississippi, residents through October 9.
The recovery center in Harrisonburg will be open Monday through Friday, October 13-17, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.
"We recommend that anybody who had damage and wants assistance to register first on phone or on-line," said Edahl. "It takes about 20 minutes and this will save a lot of time when arriving at the recovery center. But they can register at the center. It just takes longer."
He said "experts will be on hand to help."
Persons in Catahoula can qualify for rental assistant, assistance for repairing homes and may qualify for an SBA loan even though they don't own a business.
"Our mandate at FEMA is to put individuals back into a place that is safe, secure and sanitary," said Edahl.
"Most who go to the recovery center will get an SBA packet. All should fill it out and return it," he said.
Those turned down for SBA assistance, said Edahl, may then be eligible for a FEMA grant which does not have to be repaid. This can be used to purchase clothes, a vehicle if it was destroyed and other items.
"People say I'm not in business and I don't want an SBA loan," said Edahl. "But if they are turned for an SBA loan they are automatically eligible for extra assistance."
The SBA low-interest disaster loan is the primary source of long-term recovery assistance for homeowners, renters and business owners if they had to move because of disaster damage or loss Renters also may qualify for an SBA low-interest disaster loan for personal property damages.
