The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended its deadline for survivors of the Memorial Day tornadoes to apply for disaster grants.
Anyone in the disaster-designated counties, including Auglaize, Darke, Greene, Mercer, Miami and Montgomery counties, may be eligible for a grant. The deadline to apply is Sept. 3.
The U.S. Small Business Administration also extended its deadline to Sept. 3 for applications for low-interest disaster loans to repair homes or businesses for those referred by FEMA.
