Senate President Myron D. Jackson announced Wednesday that the public can come to the Legislature on St. Thomas on Monday, October 16th and Tuesday, October 17th 2017 to meet with representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to register and check the status of their applications for disaster assistance.

This community outreach will be offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the Earle B. Ottley Legislative Chambers at the Capitol Building on the waterfront on St. Thomas, for persons who have been unable to get online to apply at FEMA’s website, or those who wish to be updated or speak in person to a FEMA agent about their registration.

Members of the public are urged to bring several pieces of information to facilitate the application process, including their social security number; address of the damaged home or apartment; information about insurance coverage; telephone number; mailing address; bank account and routing numbers for those who choose to receive direct deposit of funds; and proof of ownership for the property registered when the inspector meets you.

President Jackson is pleased to partner with FEMA in order to assist residents in receiving relief for losses they have experienced since the Virgin Islands was hit by Category 5 Hurricanes Irma and Maria on September 6 and 19, 2017.

He is hopeful that the people of the territory will take advantage of this rare opportunity to interface directly with FEMA representatives who will walk them through the registration process and respond to questions about their needs for assistance. Members of the public are encouraged to park in Fort Christian parking lot and walk across the street to the Legislature building.

For more information, call 340-693-3519.
