President Donald Trump’s administration has approved federal disaster assistance for individuals affected by flooding on two Hawaii islands in April.
People on Kauai and Oahu may apply for grants to cover damage to their homes, for disaster unemployment insurance and other benefits. The most a homeowner could receive for a destroyed home is $34,000.
The administration initially rejected Hawaii’s application for assistance but then approved it after the state appealed.
People may apply for help by calling the Federal Emergency Management Agency, going online or visiting a disaster recovery center. Centers will be set up in Honolulu and on Kauai.
