Pajaro Unmet Needs Disaster Program sees over 600 household applications ahead of Saturday deadline

The County of Monterey provided an update Wednesday on the Pajaro Unmet Needs Disaster Program.

Ahead of the Saturday, Apr. 27 deadline, over 600 household applications have been completed, with close to 500 applications eligible for phase one assistance.

According to the County, $175,000 has been distributed in phase one during the week of April 15. Phase one surrounds food lost during the March 2023 floods.

"Currently, we've got about 250 already that are eligible for phase two assistance and that refers to more of the damages that people may have received with their home or with their car or personal property," Mindy Esqueda with the Department of Emergency Management said.

Meanwhile on the business side, the county says 45 applications have been completed, with many more still in progress.

"We also expect to be this last week, a lot of them coming back to provide all of that documentation that they may have been missing," Esqueda said.

The Program Application Center will remain open at Pajaro Park through Saturday, Apr. 27. You can find more info on the program on the County of Monterey website.
