Federal and state agencies have approved $28,500 in earthquake aid for Jefferson County and $12,000 for Clallam County.
Since the magnitude-6.8 Nisqually Earthquake on Feb. 28, close to $15 million in aid has been approved for Washington residents.
The aid is for rental assistance and repair grants. Federal Emergency Management Agency assistance goes toward basic needs and will not cover residents’ total losses.
Some of the aid is given as grants, while most of the money is provided in the form of low-interest loans from the federal Small Business Administration for homeowners, renters and businesses.For the complete story see Monday’s Peninsula Daily News, on sale in Clallam and Jefferson counties.
