grants and the emergency assistance checks go for housing and other

needs. Residents in these seven counties has been approved for the

aide: Conway, Cross, Fulton, Greene, Lawrence, Randolph and White

counties. Long-term assistance also is available in the form of

low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business

volunteer agencies to help Arkansas residents and businesses

recover from the storms.
