FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: FEMA Announces Transitional Sheltering Assistance Availability!
Please read the advisory below that was sent to the administration this past Tuesday. It contains guidelines for transitional sheltering assistance. As we have been telling residents during our door-to-door canvassing, they must register with FEMA. Register at www.disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-3362 (FEMA).
The PDF below, a facsimile of which was sent to all mayors in affected areas, has the detailed information, such as a list of some hotels and motels, but the mayor has been urged to ask hotels and motels in our area to participate in sheltering displaced Plainfield residents through the program.
The administration will be contacted to find out which area hotels and motels the mayor has contacted, and what the response has been so that those of you who need shelter or who know others who do not know where to go. Please forward.
