The Federal Emergency Management Agency, also known as FEMA, will hold an on-site registration for Illinois residents affected by the recent flooding.

Any Illinois resident affected may be eligible for federal assistance. It does not matter which city you’re from.

Registration will be held on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week. FEMA will be in Silvis Monday at the Eagle Ridge School on Eagle Ridge Drive from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Registration is not to be confused with earlier survey taken that helped to qualify Rock Island County. FEMA will also be at the East Moline Fire Department on Morton Drive Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 to 7 p.m.

Residents will need to bring your Social Security number, insurance information, damage information, financial records, contact information and all banking information.

Residents may also call FEMA at 1-800-621-3362, Monday thru Friday from 7am to 10pm. Registration will take place through July 9, 2013. To apply online, click here.
