Grants still available for Tri-state tornado victims
Millions of dollars in grants remain available to victims of the March tornadoes according to the Federal Home Loan Bank.
According to their website, households interested in applying for a Disaster Reconstruction Program (DRP) grant may not apply directly to the FHLBank. Instead they should contact their Local Long Term Recovery Group, Committee or Organization (LTRG) or a non-profit Sponsor Organization, or ‘Sponsor'.
The LTRG will have a case manager that can coordinate all of the household's benefits, including DRP grants.
In counties or areas where a Long Term Recovery Group is not available, the household should contact an FHLBank approved Sponsor.
Tornado victims can also contact Jill A. Cravens, Voluntary Programs Manager, toll free at (888)345-2246.
Byczkowski says applications continue to come in, and nearly $4 million remain available to qualified applicants.
Additional information can be found on the bank's website.
