Federal Funding Available
For Eligible Flood-related Damages
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced that federal disaster aid in the form of individual assistance has been made available for a number of Illinois counties, including Cook County, due to the severe storms and flooding that occurred on April 18, 2013. Skokie residents (homeowners and renters) and business owners who sustained losses from these storms may be eligible for disaster aid. The deadline to apply for disaster assistance is July 9, 2013. Once an application for disaster assistance is received, a FEMA team will visit the home to assess the damage. All FEMA officials will have an ID clearly visible.
The Village of Skokie Board of Trustees will review the proposed Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14) Budget at several upcoming budget hearings. The budget continues the Village’s 22-year property tax freeze while maintaining services, emphasizing public safety and continuing the Village’s tradition of careful financial management.
