NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency says Arkansas renters in counties where homes and property were damaged by severe spring storms may be eligible for federal disaster assistance.

Renters who were displaced from their homes by the storms may be eligible for FEMA grants to help them pay rent for temporary housing. The rental grants are good for 30 days but are subject to review until homes are livable.

The U.S. Small Business Administration also offers disaster loans to help renters repair or replace disaster-damaged personal property, including vehicles.

Residents of Crawford, Garland, Howard, Jefferson, Little River, Miller, Perry, Sebastian and Sevier counties affected by the severe storms, tornadoes and flooding between May 7 and June 15 may be eligible for assistance. The deadline to register with FEMA is Aug. 25.
