The Community Foundation Serving Greeley and Weld County and the United Way of Weld County are now accepting applications for long-term help for flood victims.
The flood relief fund, now at $871,000, is available to any affected Weld County residents. A distribution committee, made up of a board member from each organization and community representatives, will determine how to award assistance.
Priority will be given to applications received by Oct. 31, and applicants who have already applied for aid from FEMA, the Red Cross or the Department of Human Services will be expedited.
Applicants must prove they lived in an area affected by flooding, and that damage occurred to their property.
Documents for proof could include an insurance adjuster’s report, a contractor bid for repairs, a utility bill showing the address, a picture of the damage, receipts for repair expenses or a copy of a vehicle registration.
They can be mailed or returned in person to those offices.
If you or a loved one needs recovery assistance, call 2-1-1 or go to www.UnitedWay-Weld.org/2-1-1.
