Funding Still Available for Hurricane Victims

Nearly two years after hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck the Gulf Coast, money is still available for storm victims.

The money is for Angelina County residents only who are having trouble paying their household bills because of the storms. Applications for assistance can be filled out at the Salvation Army in Lufkin.

Funds are limited and are restricted to residents who have not already received disaster relief.

Katrina and Rita storm victims will not get any money directly. The funds will go directly to the utility companies for payment of bills.
