Metairie DRC Closing 12/22

Disaster Recovery Center in Metairie Closes December 22
Release Date: December 8, 2006
Release Number: 1603-581
NEW ORLEANS, La. -- One of the three remaining Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) in the New Orleans (Metairie) area will close on Friday, December 22, 2006, the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency announced today. The DRC will not re-open.
Those area residents who have been visiting the Metairie DRC location can secure assistance at the New Orleans Library DRC location at 219 Loyola or the Jefferson Parish DRC at 15 Westbank Shopping Center, Gretna, La. 70053. Representatives of state, federal and voluntary agencies and customer service representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration have been on hand to answer questions and provide recovery information to DRC visitors. Written materials about various state and federal programs were available to individuals and business owners.
FEMA's temporary housing assistance and grants for public transportation expenses, medical and dental expenses, and funeral and burial expenses do not require individuals to apply for an SBA loan. However, an applicant must complete an SBA loan application to be eligible for assistance that covers personal property, vehicle repair or replacement, and moving and storage expenses.
