  • Disaster Survivors: Beware of Fraud and Scams
    by neily.chapman on May 14, 2021 at 4:41 pm

    Disaster Survivors: Beware of Fraud and Scams NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After a disaster, scam artists, identity thieves and other criminals may attempt to take advantage of disaster survivors. Federal and Tennessee emergency management officials urge residents to watch for and report any suspicious activity. When a disaster strikes, unscrupulous people and scam artists may try to take advantage of survivors by posing as FEMA representatives or other official disaster aid workers. They may even pose as relatives “just trying to help” survivors complete their applications when they are only interested in using a survivor for their own benefit. Some so-called contractors make promises they don’t keep and do shoddy work or no work at all while pocketing a survivor’s money. Residents of Davidson, Williamson and Wilson counties are eligible to apply for assistance from FEMA to help with their costs for damage and losses caused by storms, tornadoes and flooding that […]

  • Recovery Includes a Plan for Long-Term Housing
    by stuart.lewis on May 14, 2021 at 3:19 pm

    Recovery Includes a Plan for Long-Term Housing BATON ROUGE, La. – Help for Louisiana survivors of hurricanes Laura and Delta may include temporary FEMA housing assistance. FEMA has provided direct temporary housing to over 2,000 families from hurricanes Laura and Delta with just over 500 eligible families waiting to receive accommodations. Since housing the first applicant, over 100 families have already moved out of their temporary homes. Direct housing units that are provided by FEMA are not intended to be permanent housing. If you are a hurricane Laura or Delta survivor who has been placed in a FEMA-provided housing unit, you will need to show progress toward your long-term housing plan in order to maintain eligibility. FEMA’s temporary housing assistance requires a check every 30 days on the continued need for assistance — and the development of a long-term housing plan is essential. FEMA housing occupants without a housing plan will be given information and […]
