SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Oct. 3 is the last day that victims of the Carr Fire can apply for federal disaster assistance.
The small business administration approved more than $30 million in loans for victims and FEMA has already given out even more money in grants for families needing short-term recovery efforts.
"We just want to make sure that the SPA is here for the long term," said Chelsea Irvine, public information officer for the Small Business Administration. "When you get approved for a loan you will have a case manager throughout your entire recovery process."
Federal agencies will remain in the area until help is no longer needed.
Originally the aid was only for victims of the Carr Fire, but has since expanded to victims of the Delta Fire.
