Dallas County residents impacted by recent severe storm can apply for FEMA assistance, deadline postponed to August 15

Dallas, Texas – The government Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has extended the application deadline for government aid in Texas to August 15 in a landmark step to help disaster survivors. This decision comes in response to the devastating storms and flooding that impacted the state between April 26 and June 5, affecting dozens of counties.

Residents in 35 Texas counties—including Dallas, Harris, and Collin—now have more time to apply for help. For renters and homeowners who suffered uninsured losses during the disaster, the extension is essential. From temporary housing and critical home repairs to legal services and medical bills, FEMA’s assistance can pay for a broad range of needs. Affected people are advised to make their claims right away to get the required assistance.

FEMA is also increasing its local staff among these initiatives to properly handle the relief operations and guarantee quick assistance management. Right now, the agency is looking for people with backgrounds in environmental protection, engineering, and communications among other areas of expertise. Depending on the requirements of the operation, these temporary jobs—which can last more than 120 days—offer residents an opportunity to significantly support the recovery initiatives by means of employment.

To qualify for these roles, applicants must be U.S. citizens, at least 18 years old, and possess a high school diploma or GED. Other criteria call for completing a background check and living within fifty miles of the hiring office. Selected applicants will gain worker’s compensation, holiday pay, and health insurance.
