Flood Assistance Deadline Extended to Jan 24

The deadline to apply for flooding assistance after last November’s heavy rain has been extended to January 24. The Kenai Peninsula Borough received around 120 damage reports, mostly in the K-Beach area, but less than half of those property owners applied for assistance while a State assessing team was here.

 

Borough Mayor Mike Navarre…

 

KPB. Mayor Navarre: “Part of that maybe as a result of some confusion about just what it means and we think that as word of mouth gets out more in that community that was the most heavily impacted we’ll see some additional people come in and apply for it.”

 

Jeremy Zidek with the State Dept.¬†Homeland Security and Emergency Management urged anyone with any kind of damage to apply…

 

Zidek: “Really the bottom line is, until people apply, we can’t bring out programs to bear.”

 

Zidek said the maximum amount available to individual families is $16,200. To apply online, visit: Ready.alaska.gov/IA
