FEMA, SBA, and USDA Application Assistance in Hardwick

Need help applying for FEMA before the September 12 deadline? Unsure how to file an appeal?
Searching for additional resources to help your household or business recover? Hardwick Area
Neighbor to Neighbor has coordinated a group of trained volunteers to assist with this process
and will be hosting “Open Hours” over the next few weeks for folks to drop in and work through
their questions.

Volunteers with access to computers and printers will be available on a first-come, first-served
basis. They will review other funding sources that may apply to your situation and help you
determine the next steps needed.

You can meet with a volunteer at the Memorial Building/Town Offices (20 Church Street) in
Hardwick during the following times:

Saturdays, August 19, 26 & September 2 & 9 from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Wednesdays, August 23, 30 & September 6, from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

If you’re unable to make those times or would prefer to meet in an alternative location, please
contact Hardwick Area Neighbor to Neighbor by calling 802-441-330, emailing
hardwickneighbors@gmail.com, or completing this simple request form to arrange for this
individual support option.

As a reminder, September 12 is the deadline to apply for FEMA and SBA (Small Business
Administration) assistance. Individuals and businesses who have incurred any flood damage
are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to ensure access to funding set aside for this
purpose.

The USDA will also have a staff person present at these Open Hours to help any individual who
qualifies for its Single-Family Housing Repair Grant. Funding up to $40,675 is available for
those with a $45,350 maximum household income for a family of four or a $59,900 maximum
household income up to a family of eight.

Please share this information with anyone who you think might benefit – knowledge is power!
