FEMA has extended the application deadline for federal disaster assistance from Hurricane Ian-related damages.

At the request of state officials, the new deadline is January 12th.

Okeechobee County is also included.

The agency says more than $2.69 billion in federal grants, disaster loans and flood insurance payments have been provided to the state and Florida residents after the Ian.
