The deadline for Nashville flood victims to apply for financial assistance through the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Small Business Administration has been extended 30 days to Aug. 5.

Previously, the deadline had been set at July 6.

In addition, the deadline for an individual to show proof of loss to FEMA has been extended to Aug. 5.

“Tennesseans deserve more time to get the paperwork done, whether it’s to file a claim with FEMA, a proof of loss, or to apply for an SBA loan,” U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper said in a written statement. “I’m glad that we have an extra 30 days to get the help we need.”

Individuals in a declared disaster county that require assistance should call 800-621-FEMA (3362) or apply online at www.disasterassistance.gov. Individuals and businesses can apply for low-interest SBA loans online at www.sba.gov
