FEMA Extends Deadline For Hill, Woolsey Fire Victims To Apply For Aid

FEMA has extended the deadline for people seeking federal help as a result of the Hill, and Woolsey brush fires in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.

The deadline was January 31st, but it’s now been changed to February 15th.

Homeowners, renters and small businesses are being told to sign up even if they have insurance.  There are programs to provide benefit not covered by insurance.

The new deadline also applies for people applying for Small Business Administration loans.
