PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Emergency Management Agency are scheduled to conduct state applicant briefings on Nov. 15 and 16 for state agencies, municipalities, fire districts and private, nonprofit groups that sustained damage from Hurricane Sandy.

The Nov. 15 session is scheduled for 9:45 a.m. to noon at Portsmouth Town Hall on 2200 East Main Rd., and the Nov. 16 session is scheduled for 9:45 a.m. to noon at the National Domestic Preparedness Coalition headquarters at 742 Ten Rod Rd. in Exeter.

“Any agency considering applying for public assistance must attend one of these briefings,” RIEMA Executive Director Theresa C. Murray said in a statement. “Applicants have until Dec. 3 to submit an official request for public assistance.”

“We want people to know what storm-related expenses may be eligible for reimbursement, what documentation is required, and what policies must be followed,” added Murray. “Bottom line, our goal is to make the application process as clear as possible.”

According to the release, applicants who attend one of the briefings will have the opportunity to schedule a “kickoff meeting” with a FEMA representative, which allows applicants to ask FEMA-specific related questions about eligibility and reimbursement.

Public assistance declarations have been approved for Washington, Newport, Bristol and Kent counties. The declaration for damage incurred for categories A-G under the Public Assistance Program.

Public assistance forms are available at www.riema.ri.gov.
