FEMA Disaster Assistance
If you experienced damages and losses in the recent disaster, please register for disaster assistance to help with your recovery. You can register in three ways.
You can call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362, download the FEMA app, or go online at DisasterAssitance.gov. Those who use relay services such as video relay service, captioned relay, or other, should provide FEMA with the specific number assigned to that service.
