Deadline Extended to Register for Federal Disaster Assistance in Florida: Floridians impacted by Hurricane Irma have until Nov. 24 to apply for federal disaster assistance that may cover temporary housing, essential home repairs and serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance. Disaster assistance is available to eligible individuals and households in the 48 disaster-designated counties with storm-related damages between Sept. 4 through Oct. 18, 2017. Damage resulting from Hurricane Irma and its aftermath after the closing date will not be covered by the disaster declaration. To date, more than 2.5 million people have applied for assistance. Hurricane survivors should register for assistance even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled. Applying for disaster assistance is a two-step process that ensures consideration for all FEMA programs and the U.S. Small Business Administration low-interest disaster loans. First, register with FEMA. Then complete and return the SBA loan application, if referred to the SBA. The quickest way to apply for federal assistance is online at www.disasterassistance.gov. Survivors may also apply by phone at 800-621-3362 (Voice, 711 or VRS) or 800-462-7585 (TTY). Due to high demand, lines may be busy during the day. Try calling in the morning or evening when call volume may be lower. The FEMA Helpline numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. (ET), seven days a week until further notice. FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits.

But the Week in Review, under the guise of being modernized, has become flashier and power-point like while becoming less substantive and dumbed down. We may or may not link to it in future.
