The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is looking to help Cook County renters who were affected by severe storms and flooding in mid-September last year.
Renters, including students, who had uninsured losses from the severe weather on Sept. 17-18 can now apply for FEMA assistance.
In mid-September, severe flooding in south Cook County caused basements throughout the region to flood and caused property damage.
Those who apply may also qualify for a grant under FEMA's Other Needs Assistance program.
The program covers the following, according to FEMA:
There are four ways you can apply for FEMA assistance.
You can apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov online or on FEMA's mobile app.
Renters can also call the FEMA helpline at 800-621-3362 or visit a disaster recovery center.
