FEMA Assistance Registration Deadline Draws Near

Clanton, Ala – Homeowners and renters in Bibb, Calhoun, Clay, Hale, Jefferson, Perry, Randolph and Shelby counties with uninsured damage or losses from the March 25-26, 2021 severe storms and tornadoes, should register with FEMA for federal disaster assistance and the U.S. Small Business Administration for low interest disaster loans as soon as possible.

Friday, June 25, 2021 is the last day to register.

Homeowners, renters, and small-business owners must apply by June 25 to be considered for federal disaster assistance programs. All individuals are encouraged to apply, even if they have insurance, since FEMA disaster assistance may provide benefits not covered by some insurers.
