The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will open a Disaster Recovery Center in McLean County, Kentucky, Monday, June 6 at 1 p.m. to help people affected by the recent severe storms, tornadoes and flooding.

Representatives of the U.S. Small Business Administration and FEMA will be available to explain assistance programs and help survivors apply for disaster aid.

“These centers are a great way for disaster survivors to have questions answered and to meet face-to-face with recovery experts,” said Federal Coordinating Officer Steve Ward.

The location of the McLean County center is:

McLean County Extension Office
335 W. 7th St.  in Calhoun, KY, 42327.

The center will be open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. June 6.

Beginning June 7, the center will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. The center will be closed on Sundays.

Federal disaster assistance can include grants for rental assistance and home repairs, low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help recover from the effects of the disaster.
