Flood assistance registration has been extended in Massachusetts after federal officials received a high volume of applications.
The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency announced Saturday that Federal Emergency Management Agency’s flood assistance registration deadline has been extended to June 28 in the Bay State. The program provides grants and low-interest loans aimed at helping clean up after March’s damaging floods.
MEMA said that more than $50 million has been approved and more than 4,000 have visited Disaster Recovery Centers. Seven counties in the state were declared disaster areas by President Barack Obama after the heavy rainfall in March.
