NORWICH Individuals who have still not filed an application for federal relief after the late June flooding have been granted another reprieve. FEMA officials have announced that for the second time, the application deadline has been extended.
We are extending the deadline again because we have seen a surprising number of people registering in the past few weeks, said Federal Coordinating Officer Marianne C. Jackson. The Oct. 2 deadline has been extended by two weeks. Registrations for both the federal aid from FEMA and the New York State Individual and Family Grant Program, can now be filed until Monday, Oct. 16.
