Steps Outlined For Disaster Recovery In Lincoln, Union Counties

 Steps Outlined For Disaster Recovery In Lincoln, Union Counties

Officials are urging residents affected by flooding from June 13 to 20 to start making recovery plans.

The Lincoln/Union County Long-Term Recovery Team is asking people to dial 211 to make an appointment with a disaster-recovery case manager.

The team is also requesting that residents file a claim with their homeowners’ insurance, even if they think the claim will be denied. Other recommended steps include applying for a Small Business Administration low-interest disaster loan and for the Housing Opportunity Fund as well.

The SBA outreach center at Elk Point in Union County closes Tuesday at 4 p.m. The outreach center in Canton closes this Thursday at 6 p.m.

After disaster victims have an appointment, they should bring the following information with them:

• The square-footage of their home
• A description of the damage, with photographs if possible
• A copy of a document showing proof of ownership
• A copy of the insurance award or denial letter
• A copy of a document verifying monthly income
• A copy of documents verifying checking, savings and investments
• Copies of all receipts for disaster-related repairs
• And a copy of estimates for repairs, if the resident has received an estimate
