U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3) is reminding residents of Cook, DuPage, and Will counties hit by severe storms and flooding this spring that they have until Tuesday, July 9, to apply for federal assistance. Residents and businesses impacted by the severe weather from April 16 to May 5 can register by calling the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s toll-free registration line at 800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY 800-462-7585 to find out if they are eligible for disaster assistance. Registration can also be done online at www.disasterassistance.gov.
“I know many in the Third District suffered serious damage from the severe weather and continue to deal with the aftermath,” Rep. Lipinski said. “Even those of you who sustained minor damage or are not certain if you qualify for help, I urge you to contact FEMA to learn more about what aid may be available for you.”
Following torrential rainstorms that damaged homes and businesses across the state, Rep. Lipinski joined the rest of the Illinois delegation this spring to ask the President to back the governor’s request for federal aid. According to FEMA, as of June 27, more than 45,000 applications in Illinois have been approved to receive aid totaling a combined $114.3 million.

Come Early, Why Wait?
All children entering kindergarten, 6th & 9th grades are required to have a physical exam. School physicals are valid for 12 months before a child enters kindergarten, so take advantage of having the physical completed early to avoid the back-to-school rush. Walk-Ins are welcome year-round, Monday-Friday at all sites.
There is no cost for a physical exam given by a physician. Immunizations and lead screenings may require a minimal fee. Please have the following items available with you at the time of your child’s physical exam:
- Parent/Guardian Current Township I.D. Card
- Medicaid/Insurance Information
- Child’s Immunization Record (must have to complete physical)
- Physical Form (Do Not complete the immunization section of the form)
Please be ready to answer questions concerning your child’s medical history including allergies, medications, illnesses, etc. No credit/debit cards accepted. Cash and checks only. Call (708) 424-9200 to schedule an appointment.
