Clean-Up Funds Coming to South Jersey

Clean-Up Funds Coming to South Jersey Disaster aid is flowing to flood-ravaged Burlington and Camden counties.

President George W. Bush declared the two counties a federal disaster area last month after relentless rains caused widespread damage to homes and businesses.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has received more than 2,000 applications for aid.

Spokeswoman Rita Kepner said FEMA has dispersed nearly $4 million for emergency repairs and temporary housing.

The Small Business Administration says it has processed 23 disaster loans and has issued more than $1 million to business and homeowners.

FEMA aid generally covers emergency and short-term needs, while SBA loans are to help pay for long-term repairs.

The FEMA field office will remain open as long as it's needed. The phone number is (800) 621-FEMA.
