The State of Alaska released a notice containing directions for Alaskans affected by last week’s earthquake to apply for grants and disaster relief, which can be found at http://ready.alaska.gov. This can be very valuable to those struggling to rebuild after damages incurred last week. Please direct inquiries for disaster assistance to this site and feel free to forward this notice to those looking for help. We also posted this on the RISQ website. The link at http://ready.alaska.gov for individual assistance ALSO applies for business disaster relief. Our office contacted the State Emergency Operations Center, a division of Homeland Security, this morning and confirmed businesses are eligible to apply for relief. If you cannot access the web, the hotline is 855-445-7131, or you can call the SEOC directly at 907-428-7100.
