Officials with FEMA are warning flood victims in Texas their application for disaster assistance may have been denied, but that doesn't mean they're not eligible for assistance.

All that may be needed for approval from FEMA is more information on the application.

Officials say those that are denied usually fail to complete some key areas of the application listed below:

-return insurance information
-complete and return the us small business administration loan
-provide information to prove occupancy or ownership of the damaged property]

Officials say those affected by the floods have twelve months after the disaster to receive federal funding.

Those who need to update their application information or have questions about disaster assistance are encouraged to call the FEMA help line at 800-621-FEMA (3362); TTY: 800-462-7585.

Other information can be found at www.fema.gov. The deadline to register for assistance is October 29.

    We've just gone thru our third hurricane in three years. During Rita we lost our home and have been in Fema trailors ever since, but this time there has been no help for anyone. Fema was there to give money to help people during the last major hurricane, but this time it seems the well is dry. Alot of people would say, "why do these people expect help from the government?" Well this is the answer, as of right now we do not have jobs, we evacuated when we didn't have money in the first place and now we are about 400 miles away from home with no money, food, and staying with family who have there own lives and bills to worry about. What are we to do? The help seems to be not there at all. I feel lost and totally helpless because my home and my town are in ruins, and it seems that the only place I can get help, doesn't want to help at all.
