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.
