|News from Congressman John Moolenaar|
Tonight at 7:05 PM, I am hosting a live telephone town hall about the resources from FEMA and other federal agencies that are now available to Michigan residents following the federal government’s disaster declaration for the May flooding.
The call will include officials from FEMA, the Small Business Administration, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of Rural Development, and the Michigan State Police, to take questions from residents and discuss how their departments can assist in rebuilding.
Residents can sign up to be a part of the call at Moolenaar.House.Gov/Live, where it will also be livestreamed tonight.
Residents can also begin the application for assistance at DisasterAssistance.Gov, or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). For the hearing and speech impaired, the number is 1-800-462-7585 (TTY). Both numbers are staffed from 7 AM to 10 PM ET, seven days a week. I look forward to speaking with you during tonight’s event. Sincerely,
