LIHUE — Today is the deadline for homeowners who suffered flood damage in April to report damages and increase Hawaii’s chance of being eligible for federal grants and loans.
As of Thursday, the state needs 58 more homeowners from Oahu and Kauai to report flood damage to the Federal Emergency Management Agency in order for the state to receive any money.
That’s because FEMA requires at least 173 homeowners to report damages in order for all homeowners to qualify for the Individual Assistance Program.
On Oahu and Kauai as of Thursday, 115 homes had been reported damaged.
If your home was damaged by flooding and you did not report it to FEMA or the Red Cross, go to www.honolulu.gov/dem or call 723-8960 before the deadline of 4 p.m. today.
