Early damage estimates show that nearly 200 homes and businesses in those two counties were damaged.
If approved, the Federal Emergency Management Agency program will provide grants and low-interest loans to homeowners, renters and business owners affected by the quake.
The 5.6 magnitude quake that struck Oklahoma November 5, 2011 was the strongest ever recorded in the state.
