As many of you know, helping our friends and neighbors who were recently affected by the severe flooding remains one my top priorities. In addition to the $10 million that the Legislature approved to help victims recover, a FEMA Disaster Recovery Center was opened up today, July 30, in Jefferson-Chalmers. It will provide those affected the opportunity to receive information regarding disaster assistance programs, repairs and rebuilding, and ask questions about written correspondence.
Where: Golightly Career and Technical Center, 900 Dickerson Ave., Detroit.
When: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Sunday.
If you were affected by the flooding and are looking to receive FEMA assistance, you can do so by reaching out in a number of ways prior to visiting the recovery center:
Applicants and staff in the recovery center are required to wear a face mask while inside the center.
While this is only a start to the recovery efforts, I look forward to continuing to work with both the federal and state government to bring aid to those who need it most.
