Feds can apply for disaster relief through FEEA
Monday - 10/29/2012, 11:48am EDT
Federal employees who experience major loss during Post-tropical Cyclone Sandy can apply for a grant from the Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund.
Feds can fill out the application form. Grant amounts go up to $500 and are determined on a case-by-case basis. The grants are open to civilian and postal employees.
"Due to limited funding, FEEA will prioritize grants for those with major property damage or other significant hardship," according to the FEEA website.
Steve Bauer, FEEA director, told The Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp the not-for-profit expects to receive up to 1,000 applications but can only fund a few hundred. FEEA aims to raise $150-200,000, he said.
FEEA also offers no-interest emergency loans of up to $1,000. Loans are repaid through the employees' payroll.
Feds can call 1-800-323-4140 for more information.
Also, FEEA accepts donations online.
