Residents in six counties eligible for assistance, agency says

LITTLE ROCK _  State officials say residents of six counties
where tornadoes touched down on Saturday can apply for state aid to
help with recovery from the storms. Homeowners or renters in
Chicot, Conway, Drew, Lonoke, Pulaski, and White counties may be
eligible for the assistance if they suffered damage from the
tornadoes. That's according to a news release from the Arkansas
Department of Emergency Management.

The agency said the assistance is available from two programs --
temporary housing assistance grants, for victims whose primary
residences were destroyed or are uninhabitable -- and a state
Health and Human Services Department program that helps disaster
victims with serious needs or necessary expenses stemming from the
storms.
