PENSACOLA, Fla. – One week after becoming eligible for federal assistance for Hurricane Sally, 1,716 Florida individuals and households in Bay, Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties have been approved for $7.49 million in funding from FEMA.

The money is for temporary housing expenses, basic home repairs and other essential disaster-related needs.

If you have uninsured losses from the storm, you can register in several ways:

  • Visit DisasterAssistance.gov, enter your location and click on “Apply Online”
  • Download the FEMA App for smartphones
  • Call 800-621-3362 (800-462-7585 TTY). Multilingual operators are available. The toll-free numbers are open every day from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time.
