Applicant Briefings for Public Assistance

– The Vermont Agency of Transportation will be holding applicant briefings for communities in counties granted a Public Assistance disaster declaration following floods from May 26-27, 2011.

Representatives from communities in Caledonia County are invited to a meeting on July 20th to learn how to apply for federal reimbursement for flood response and recovery costs.

The meeting is as follows:

July 20, 2011: Caledonia County at the Lyndon Fire Station, 316 Main Street, Lyndonville, VT. Briefing will begin at 9:00 a.m. and followed by a FEMA applicants’ kick-off meeting.

These meetings are for communities in Caledonia County only and are not connected to Individual Assistance. Individual homeowners and renters in Addison, Caledonia, Chittenden, Grand Isle, Franklin, Lamoille, Essex, and Washington counties should call 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or visit www.disasterassistance.gov to apply for disaster funds. If you have previously called 211 to report damage you still need to register with FEMA.

Cities and towns with questions should contact their local Agency of Transportation district office.
