Addison County has been officially declared for Public Assistance (along with all VT counties except for Grand Isle, Franklin and Essex). for the July 2023 Storm (DR4720). This means that in Addison County those town organizations, schools, and certain non-profit organizations affected by the storm will be eligible for up to 75% federal share in recovery costs to rebuild again. VEM has a team of individuals ready to assist in this process and has posted answers to some commonly asked questions here.
After your town registers in the FEMA Grants Portal, you will be assigned a FEMA program delivery manager and a STATE Public Assistance Coordinator to help you through the process. You may also be assigned one of their Guidehouse Contract Consultants. Please do not do anything other than registering for Public Assistance for DR4720, until you have been asked.
