Officials with Volusia County Government are informing residents of the various temporary housing assistance programs available to Hurricane Ian victims through FEMA and the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM).
According to a release, the eligibility criteria and the type of temporary housing assistance differ for both organizations, with baseline requirements being that the resident’s home is no longer habitable due to Hurricane Ian, and they were living in Volusia County at the time of the storm.
“If your home is not safe for human habitation, you’re living in your car or staying with a relative or friend because of Hurricane Ian, please apply as soon as possible. Allow our state and federal partners to see what assistance may be available to you. The safety of our residents is always our top priority,” said Volusia County Emergency Services Director Jim Judge.
The deadline to apply for any assistance, including temporary housing, is January 12, 2023.
