FEMA opens assistance center for those still dealing with earthquake issues

As recovery from the Nov. 30 earthquake continues, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, is opening a disaster recovery center in Soldotna for this week only.

Opening this (Monday) morning at 9, the center will be open until 7 p.m. each evening through Saturday.

Set up in the Soldotna United Methodist Church on South Binkley, the center will be operated by the State of Alaska and FEMA. There, people will be able to get in-person advice and referrals for those affected.

The center is available for homeowners, renters and business owners to apply for assistance for un- and under-insured damages and loss resulting from the quake.

Help will be available to register for FEMA's Individual Assistance Program and to apply for Small Business Administration low-interest loans, among other services, including how to appeal a FEMA eligibility decision.
