FEMA, other agencies come up big for Georgians following Hurricane Matthew

Hurricane Matthew wreaked havoc along Georgia’s coastline, leaving thousands with damaged homes, businesses, and of course key infrastructure.

Luckily several federal agencies have already aided in the recovery process, with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the U.S. Small Business Administration, and the National Flood Insurance Program doling out financial assistance to the tune of $21.6 million to individuals effected by the hurricane.

That total includes over $8 million in flood insurance from the NFIP, $5.7 million from FEMA through the Individuals and Households Program, and another $7.8 million in the form of SBA loans.

Over 20,000 homes were contacted by FEMA representatives, resulting in 11,000 points of contact and 1,100 FEMA registrations for aid.
