By KTVA CBS 11 News 3:13 PM December 17, 2013

State officials said they’ve received 162 applications from residents affected by November storms in Western and Interior Alaska.

ANCHORAGE – Alaskans impacted by floods or severe winter weather earlier this year have one more month to apply for state assistance.

In a Tuesday statement, the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management said the state individual assistance hotline and online registration would be available through Jan. 17. Residents of Unalakleet, Kotlik, Scammon Bay, Nunam Iqua, Stebbins, Tununak, Teller, Shismaref and the Fairbanks North Star Borough could be eligible for the state’s individual family grant program or temporary housing assistance.

State officials said residents seeking aid should gather a description of damages, ownership and insurance documents, personal identification and proof of occupancy to facilitate the application process.

As of Sunday, state officials said they’d received 162 applications from people affected by November storms in Western and Interior Alaska and 52 applications from Kenai residents impacted by flooding.
