The Federal Emergency Management Agency will have a Disaster Recovery Center open in Livingston County, Friday (today), Saturday and Monday. In the state of Missouri, 973 households have been approved for individual assistance grants that total $4.5 million dollars. FEMA says Missourians who have registered with the agency may be eligible for reimbursement if they paid out-of-pocket expenses for temporary lodging because of damage to their primary residence from recent flooding, severe storms and tornadoes. Survivors who are approved for lodging reimbursement must submit zero-balance receipts to FEMA to receive payment.
The Disaster Recovery Center is located at Calvary Baptist Church in Chillicothe. Hours are from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.
If you have not already registered for assistance, you can do so at the recovery center. Registration takes about 20 minutes. You can also register by calling a toll free number, 800-621-3362 or go on-line at disasterassistance.gov
The Small Business Administration will also be onhand at the Recovery Center.
