News Release
BURLINGTON, Vt. – Officials with the Federal Emergency Management Agency are encouraging Vermont residents affected by the spring flooding to get the facts before deciding whether they are eligible for disaster assistance. One of the reasons renters, homeowners and businesses may not be registering is a mistaken belief that they will be taking away money from others who have had more damage. "There is enough disaster assistance for everyone," said FEMA’s federal coordinating officer Craig Gilbert. "The worst thing you can do is NOT register."
