The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is having a flood recovery legal clinic for anyone needing assistance in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
The clinic will be from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at the Fort Smith Public Library, 3201 Rogers Ave., in the Community Room.
The event will provide free legal help for victims of the May 2019 flooding that devastated the entire area. Topics include what FEMA benefits are available, housing issues, contractors, replacing legal documents and more.
The clinic will be hosted by the Center for Arkansas Legal Services and the University of Arkansas School of Law’s pro bono and community engagements program.
Those seeking assistance are asked to bring identification and any paperwork, such as FEMA loan denials, with them to the event. Appointments are strongly encouraged but not required. To make an appointment, or for more information, call Michelle Medina-Torres at (479) 785-5211, extension 203.
