This after the federal agency continues to assist victims of the June floods.
La-Tanga Hopes, FEMA Media Relations Specialist, “We are now at $10 million dollars for approved funding and these are grants. This is money you do not have to pay back. It’s important for anyone that has been impacted by the storm to come down and see if they can get and become eligible.”
Bi-lingual support is available. Anyone with questions about their assistance and eligibility can visit the Cameron, Willacy, and Hidalgo Counties Disaster Recovery Centers.
