[ARCHIVED] Flood Relief Application Deadline Extended To July 24

Village of Westmont
Date Issued: July 20, 2013

DuPage County, along with numerous other counties in northeast Illinois, were approved for federal assistance to help people and businesses recover from historic flooding that occurred mid-April. A federal disaster declaration makes assistance available to flood victims, including grants to individuals and households to help with temporary housing, home repairs or replacement and other disaster-related expenses, as well as low-interest SBA loans to residents and businesses

The extended deadline to apply for these funds is Wednesday, July 24.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which administers the assistance program, has a toll-free telephone number 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY for hearing and speech impaired) for victims to apply for assistance. Registration can also be done online at Additional flood recovery resources and information can be found at

Since the recent flooding incident, the Village has created a Community Stormwater Management Committee. The goal of the committee is to review stormwater management concerns throughout the community and make recommendations regarding projects and funding options. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 29, 7 p.m. at the Village Hall, 31 W. Quincy.
