TRENTON, NJ (CBS) – FEMA’s Transitional Sheltering Assistance Program has been extended.

The new deadline is February 8th, 2013, meaning eligible people can get TSA assistance through February 8th with a checkout date of Feb. 9th.

FEMA activated the TSA program in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. It allows eligible survivors who cannot return to their homes because of damage caused by the storm to stay in participating hotels or motels until more suitable housing is available.

To register with FEMA, call the phone number listed above or visit www.disasterassistance.gov on the Internet.
