Indiana Shifts to Post-Tornado Recovery Phase

March 22, 2012

The southern Indiana town of Henryville has moved into the long recovery phase from March 2 tornadoes that devastated the community, and officials are urging homeowners to apply for federal aid to help speed the process along.

Greg Eaton of the Federal Emergency Management Agency says more than 900 people have registered for individual assistance totaling $740,000 but says many others might not get aid because they have homeowner’s insurance.

The News and Tribune reports the maximum grant FEMA can provide is $31,400. The agency cannot duplicate benefits.

The U.S. Small Business Administration also offers low-interest loans for businesses, homeowners and renters.
