Dr. Boozman's Check-up

If you’ve been waiting to talk to a federal representative in person about disaster aid from the April 27th storm, time is running out.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster recovery centers in Mayflower will shut down for good after they close at 2 pm on Saturday, June 14th.

The addresses and hours for the two sites are as follows:

Mayflower Disaster Recovery Center
600 Highway 365
Mayflower, AR 72106
Hours: Monday–Friday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Vilonia Disaster Recovery Center
1122 Main St.
Vilonia, AR 72455
Hours: Monday to Friday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. 
Saturday: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

After Saturday, the Mayflower center will transition to a Small Business Administration (SBA) Disaster Loan Outreach Center on Monday, June 16th.

FEMA & Arkansas Department of Emergency Management (ADEM) have stated that traffic to the two remaining recovery centers has dropped dramatically, indicating the information needs of survivors in the area have been met.

I encourage anyone in Faulkner County who may be eligible for disaster aid, and hasn’t yet visited with FEMA, to stop by the Mayflower or Vilonia centers before Saturday.
