ALBANY, GA (WALB) - State and Federal officials want you to reach out to your neighbor to make sure those effected by spring flooding get the help they need.

So far more than 1,300 residents have applied for disaster assistance. And more than 4.7 seven million dollars in federal funding have been approved.

But they still want to make sure no one is overlooked and are asking everyone in the 23 declared counties to reach out.

"Well right now we are in a recession. And the way things are going, we all need to pull together and give each other a helping hand with what we need. That is why I think it is good for neighbors to help on another," said Kevin Foster.

The deadline to apply for federal assistance is June 22nd. Anyone effected can call 1-800-621-FEMA. You can also apply online by clicking here.
