As the Suncoast begins to recover from Hurricane Irma, Congressman Vern Buchanan today pointed residents to a number of federal disaster relief programs that can help with the recovery.
"I want to make sure my constituents are aware of the federal resources available to help address any damage Irma left behind," said Buchanan, who monitored the storm from the Manatee County Emergency Operations Center.
The federal disaster declaration issued Sunday for Sarasota, Manatee and Hillsborough Counties unlocked a number of programs to help residents, including grants and loans for home repairs, rental assistance for temporary housing, unemployment payments, loans for small businesses and crisis counseling.
To apply for assistance, individuals and business owners should visit www.DisasterAssistance.gov or call 1-800-621-3362.read more
