Governor Chris Christie announced another 30 day extension to file with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Small Business Administration (SBA) for Disaster Loan Assistance. Folks impacted by Superstorm Sandy now have until May 1st, 2013.

In a press release Christie says the decision was made because of the magnitude of the storm disaster. “It is vitally important for people to know that the FEMA individual assistance registration process is essential to receiving any type of federal disaster assistance – including grant assistance for homeowners and renters as outlined in our CDBG disaster relief action plan. This deadline will help us ensure that every affected New Jerseyan gets registered.”

People with storm losses in all counties can register online at and via smart phone or tablet at

Survivors also can register by phone or 711/VRS by calling 800-621-3362, TTY800-462-7585.

The disaster registration process serves as a referral point for FEMA programs and those of partner agencies such as the SBA, American Red Cross and the Salvation Army.
