FEMA Disaster Relief For Glades County

Mahoney Gets Assistance For Glades

Moore Haven, Fl – Following a visit with FEMA officials to inspect 77 homes damaged by Tropical Storm Fay, along with a letter to Governor Charlie Crist, Congressman Tim Mahoney announced  that Glades County has now qualified for FEMA's Individual and Households Assistance Program (IHP). Although Glades County sustained serious damage in Tropical Storm Fay, FEMA had not included the county in its Individual and Households Assistance (IHP) disaster relief program.

"Tropical Storm Fay seriously damaged the homes and businesses in Glades County, particularly in Moore Haven, and my constituents continue to suffer from Fay's effects," said Congressman Mahoney. "I am pleased that we are able to secure this critical disaster relief funding to help our residents and business owners to recover from the storm."

FEMA's Individual and Households Assistance Program (IHP)
provides storm victims with funding to help with: rent or temporary housing, home repair or reconstruction, and other expenses (e.g. clothing, household items). To learn about FEMA's Individual and Household Assistance Program, click here.
