Federal Disaster Assistance Tops $16 Million in West

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- Federal disaster assistance has now topped $16 million in West.

It has been almost six months since the fertilizer plant explosion and federal disaster assistance for eligible survivors has topped $16 million.

More than $9 million comes from federal disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration, nearly $840,000 from FEMA, and more than $6.2 million from FEMA Public Assistance funding.

"We continue to support our local and state partners as they assist survivors with rebuilding their communities and lives," said Federal Coordinating Officer Kevin L. Hannes. "We also encourage anyone who registered for disaster assistance but didn't complete the process to contact us and get in the necessary paperwork. You many still be eligible to receive help."

Survivors with questions are encouraged to contact FEMA here.
