FEMA Application Begins

FEMA representatives and volunteers assisted Hurricane Rita evacuees in filling out FEMA applications in Nacogdoches. Computers in the lobby of SFA's Steen library are being made available for registration. City and church buses are shuttling evacuees from shelters so they can do the needed paperwork. Evacuees are applying for cash vouchers and beginning the process for long term assistance.

Port Arther Michael Ann Allen said, "I did have some money, but of course with the trip it has taken away from what I had." Evacuees had planned for a two day trip, but now it could be as long as a month.

The FEMA application center at the SFA Steen Library will be open Thursday from 9am to 5pm.
