Feds Extend Application Deadline for Woolsey Fire Relief Programs


LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The federal government today extended the deadline for Woolsey Fire victims to apply for federal grants or small business loans.

Thursday had been the deadline for fire victims to apply for Federal Emergency Management grants and for Small Business Administration home or business loans.

Authorities said the state requested the extension due to the number of people applying for aid, indicating that some people ``are still assessing their damage and need additional time'' to complete the applications.

FEMA can be reached at www.disasterassistance.gov or (800) 621-3362. Residents can contact SBA at (800) 659-2955 or visit https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela .

Today is still the deadline for residents to submit right-of-entry forms to the county to opt in for state workers to remove debris from properties or to opt out of the program. Those forms can be found online at www.lacounty.gov/lacountyrecovers or by calling (626) 979-5370.
