Northampton County's Division of Emergency Management Services is reminding organizations that the deadline to file a request for public assistance regarding damage from Hurricane Sandy is approaching.

Organizations that have incurred disaster related costs as a result of Hurricane Sandy have until March 11, 2013 to submit a form and be eligible for funding.

"It is a simple, short form with self-contained instructions used to initiate the grant process with FEMA," said Angel Gillette, hazard mitigation and disaster recovery manager for Northampton County Emergency Management Services.

Information on Northampton County's Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts can be found by visiting the NCEMS website.
