Deadline arrives for severe weather assistance applications
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The deadline has arrived to apply for disaster loan applications for eligible private, nonprofit organizations in seven West Virginia counties affected by severe storms in May and June.
The West Virginia Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management says Monday is the last day for such organizations to apply. The assistance is for physical damage caused by severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides from May 28 to June 3.
Eligible counties are Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Jefferson, Mineral, Morgan and Pendleton. Organizations should contact their county’s emergency manager for information.
Some private, nonprofit organizations that don’t provide critical services may be eligible for low-interest disaster loans.
The deadline to submit economic injury applications is April 12.
