Even though registration deadline passed, there's still options from FEMA & SBA

Even though the registration deadline has passed, you still have options from FEMA and SBA

For those impacted by Hurricane Harvey, the deadline to register for FEMA and SBA loan assistance was November 30th.

But that doesn't mean you're out of options.

Even if you didn't apply, as long as you registered by that day, you can still fill out an application.

Susheel Kumar, with SBA, says they're averaging about 150 new applications each day, which means the need in Southeast Texas is still very prevalent.

Also, FEMA and SBA want to remind residents that just because you were initially denied assistance, or didn't receive as much assistance as you wanted, there is time to appeal.

The easiest way to appeal, is to come into the DRC's in your area. You can find those by clicking HERE.

Another reminder, even if you were denied by FEMA, that doesn't mean you will be denied by the SBA. Although they are both government agencies, the funding for both are completely separate, as well as the application processes.

Also, if you exhausted all options with FEMA and SBA, you can still come to a DRC to be pointed in the right direction.

Volunteer agency liaisons can set you up with local non-profit and church groups willing to help you get back on your feet.
