People still reeling from Hurricane Sandy will have an extra month to register for Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster assistance.

Survivors will now have until Jan. 30 because of the magnitude of the storm, FEMA announced Monday. The traditional, 60-day window was extended due to the extent of damage, the agency said.

Gov. Chris Christie is urging those affected to get registered – as soon as possible.

“The single most important step people can take in this recovery period is to register with FEMA, if they haven’t already,” Christie said. “This extension will help us ensure that anyone who has been affected by the storm gets registered and the help they need and deserve.”

The FEMA disaster assistance can cover rental assistance, essential home repairs, property loss, and other serious needs not covered by insurance, the federal agency said.

Registration is available here or via smartphone or tablet here, and by phone at (800) 621-3362.

“The process of a family receiving any type of federal disaster assistance begins with registering as a disaster survivor with FEMA and working with a coordinator to determine what sort of relief they are eligible for,” Christie said.

Monday over $5 million in reimbursements were announced for the municipalities of Brick and Freehold for emergency protective measures in the aftermath of Sandy, including increased police patrols, securing evacuated areas, and conducting rescues.
