WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IF YOU HAD DAMAGE
♦ Register with FEMA at www.disasterassistance.gov. This is the fastest way to register for help.
How to apply:
• Online, visit www.DisasterAssistance.gov.
• On a smart phone, download the FEMA app and click on “disaster resources,” then “apply for assistance online.”
• By phone, call FEMA’s toll-free registration line at 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585; or use 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS). Telephone registration is available from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Central Daylight Time seven days a week.
• Visit a Disaster Recovery Center and speak to a FEMA specialist one-on-one. To find the nearest DRC, go online to FEMA.gov/DRC.
During Presidentially declared disasters the US Small Business Administration provides low interest rate loans for homeowners, renters as well as businesses of all sizes including most private nonprofit organizations.
♦ Homeowners and renters should submit their SBA disaster loan application, even if they are not sure if they will need or want a loan. If SBA cannot approve your application, in most cases we refer you to FEMA’s Other Needs Assistance (ONA) program for possible additional assistance.
