Wildfire survivors have more time to register for federal assistance

Texas homeowners, renters and business owners who suffered losses caused by the wildfires on or after Aug. 30 have more time to apply for federal disaster recovery assistance. At the request of the state, FEMA is extending the registration deadline to January 6. More details are available on the FEMA website.

“We hope this additional time will ensure that every Texan affected by the wildfires has an opportunity to register for state and federal assistance,” said Federal Coordinating Officer Kevin L. Hannes of FEMA. “We want to be sure to reach all wildfire survivors who still need help."
