MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Middle Tennessee's March 3 tornado survivors have one week to complete an application for a federal disaster grant.


The Federal Emergency Management Agency will close the application period on Monday, May 4.


During a recent press briefing, Mayor John Cooper noted that 645 Nashville homeowners and renters have already applied for aid. He says nearly $2 million in individual assistance has been approved.


Cooper also noted that roughly $9 million in Small Business Administration disaster loans have been awarded to Metro companies impacted by the storm.

Metro officials recently launched a telephone tornado hotline for Nashville residents who need help navigating available aid options. That number is 615-270-9255.
