Flooding Assistance Update
On May 10, President Obama declared Will County and ten other Illinois counties a federal disaster area. The declaration makes assistance available to residents, businesses, and farmers. Individuals seeking assistance should contact FEMA at 800-621-FEMA or online at www.disasterassistance.gov.
FEMA has dispatched Disaster Survivor Assistance Teams (DSAT) to work in Will County over the next few days. Their job is to make sure individuals and businesses are aware that federal assistance is available and, if necessary, help them complete an application for assistance. They will be clearly identified with FEMA windbreakers and ID cards.
