Americus-  Statewide disaster recovery aid has now topped 6.58 million dollars.

For the nine counties that locally include Baker, Dougherty, Mitchell, Sumter, Taylor, and Worth Counties, more than 1,700 households have registered for individual assistance. More than five million dollars in loans have been approved by the Small Business Administration.

Twenty-two hundred people have visited the Disaster Recovery Centers in several counties. All of those disaster centers are now closed, but storm victims still have until May first to apply for federal and state assistance.

You can apply for assistance by dialing FEMA at 1-800 621-FEMA.
