Kentucky tornado relief fund to provide additional help for uninsured renters impacted by storms, as well as homeowners

The Team Western Kentucky Tornado Relief Fund will provide 10% of the final amount of individual assistance for housing the Federal Emergency Management Agency allocates to Dec. 10 storm survivors who were uninsured renters, Gov. Andy Beshear said Tuesday.

Beshear has previously announced that the fund would provide 10% in addition to individual assistance for uninsured homeowners.

For example, if FEMA awarded an individual $40,000, Kentucky will add $4,000 for that individual.

To be eligible for that 10% of additional assistance from the state fund, homeowners and renters must apply for FEMA assistance.
