BURLINGTON, Vt. -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency has recently incorporated the latest high-tech ways of getting the word out about disaster assistance, including websites, mobile applications and cell phones. However, one of the best ways to spread information is still the old-fashioned way: word-of-mouth. That's why officials from FEMA and Vermont Emergency Management are encouraging Vermonters who have experienced damage from the spring flooding and already registered for disaster assistance to let their friends and neighbors know that help may be available.

BURLINGTON, Vt. -- One message that state and federal officials want to share with those affected by the flood is to fill out and return your U.S. Small Business Administration application -- don't throw it away. Applicants who register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency typically receive a loan application from the U.S. Small Business Administration. Many think that these are for businesses or people who want to take out loans and push these applications to the side or patently discard them.
