Deadline Nears for Nonprofit Sandy Claims

FEMA may reimburse up to 75 percent of storm-related expenses.

The deadline is approaching for nonprofits to claim federal aid for expenses related to Superstorm Sandy.

The late-October storm drenched the mid-Atlantic.

Nonprofits like volunteer fire companies must submit paperwork to the Federal Emergency Management Agency by Feb. 2.

FEMA funding is only available for expenses incurred between Oct. 26 and Nov. 4.

According to a Baltimore County news release, nonprofits must prove at least $1,000 in storm expenses, and will have 60 days to send in lists of storm damages and expenses. Up to 75 percent of storm expenses—including generators, repairs and tools—can be reimbursed.

For more information and copies of FEMA's forms, residents can contact Baltimore County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management at 410-887-5996 or email swelzant@baltimorecountymd.gov.

Organizations needing assistance with the application process can attend a briefing at the Public Safety Building in Towson at 6 p.m. Jan. 31, according to a news release.
