(WAFB) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is reminding everyone that June is the last month eligible flood survivors can stay in their Manufactured Housing Units (MHUs) for $50.

Starting in July, occupants will be responsible for 50 percent of the Fair Market Rent. Then in August, rent will increase to 100 percent of the Fair Market Rent.

To receive a reduced rent, occupants are encouraged to file an appeal for a reduction. The appeal will notify occupants if they qualify as a low to moderate household.
