Alabama residents and business owners who suffered losses from the severe storms and tornadoes in early November have until Jan. 13, 2003 to register for federal and state disaster assistance.
Twenty-nine Alabama counties have been declared disaster areas, including Barbour, Dale and Henry counties.
Federal and state recovery officials strongly encourage people in those areas who have not already done so to register for assistance as soon as possible.
The toll free number to call is 1-800-621-3362.
State officials said there are grants to help pay for temporary home repairs and other disaster related expenses.
There are also low interest small business loans to cover residential and business losses that are not covered by insurance.
But, the only way to be considered for any of them is by registering with FEMA.
