Brooks County residents are now eligible to apply for GEMA disaster assistance thanks to an extension from Gov. Brian Kemp.
Individual assistance can cover personal recovery expenses, including temporary housing, home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses and other programs.
Public assistance can cover recovery expenses for state and local government entities, as well as not-for-profit organizations. This included funds for debris removal and emergency work.
Residents can apply for relief online, or by calling 800-621-3362.
