New Financial Relief Available for April 2011 Tornado Victims
Families whose homes were damaged or destroyed in last year's April tornadoes could be eligible for financial help thanks to federal grant money.
Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs will be handing out up to $8 million to tornado victims in central and north Alabama.
"The wind destroyed everything. I turned two times like a roller coaster," says Gustavo Cabrera.
To be eligible for the funding, you must prove you own your home and it was damaged by the storm, and you have not received any money from any other source.
Priority will go to people who are elderly and disabled, low-income, those with children or those who've been displaced.
You have the next two months to apply for the grant money.
To start the application process call 211 on your land line phone, or if you have a cell phone, call toll free, 1-888-421-1266.
