Georgia Flood Victims Receive $82 Million

November 9, 2009

In just over six weeks, more than $82 million has reached survivors of the Georgia floods to help them in their recovery, according to federal officials.

“While much has been done to help thousands of people, there are still those who have not registered for help,” said Georgia Emergency Management Agency (GEMA) Director Charley English.

People and businesses in 17 disaster-affected counties can register by visiting, or by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362), TTY 800-462-7585.

The deadline to apply for assistance is Nov. 23. Gracia Szczech, head of FEMA flood recovery in Georgia, said that applications for disaster loans also must be turned in by the same day.
