This morning President Biden approved Governor Lou Leon Guerrero’s request for Individual Assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which provides grants for homeowners and renters like rental assistance and money for home repairs. FEMA inspectors will perform home by home assessments to initiate the process to provide direct relief to our people.
“We are appreciative of the work we’ve already accomplished with our territorial and federal partners and I’m happy to announce that more relief is on the way,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “As our community continues making progress towards recovery in the wake of Typhoon Mawar, I’ve been assured that Guam will be provided with every necessary resource for a complete and speedy recovery.”
“FEMA is dedicated to helping Guam recover from Typhoon Mawar,” said FEMA Federal Coordination Officer Bern Ruiz. “Residents who suffered damages to their home as a result of the storm should contact FEMA to register. You can register with FEMA by calling 1-800-621-3362, through our website at disasterassistance.gov and the FEMA App.”
