Camden and Glynn are eligible to receive both FEMA public and private assistance.

President Donald Trump has declared Camden, Chatham, and Glynn counties federal disaster areas. This means that you can now apply for assistance through FEMA.

FEMA gives public assistance to local governments to clear debris. Typically, FEMA pays 75% of the cost and the state, with local governments, share the other 25%. However, Governor Deal stated on Thursday the state will pay for the local government’s public share of assistance due to having two hurricanes in less than a year.

Residents and businesses can now apply for individual and private assistance. By declaring the area a federal disaster, a monetary threshold must be met to receive a particular level of assistance. Residents are encouraged to document all aspects of storm related damages.

For more information on how to apply for assistance, you have to fill out the information. Please review the FEMA site and read carefully.
