Disaster Preparedness + Recovery Assistance

Disaster Assistance is available for affected individuals and businesses after a Presidential disaster declaration. The first step for individuals or businesses that require assistance is to call the Federal Emergency Management Agency at 1-800-637-3362. Once an application is processed, further assistance may be coordinated through a Disaster Recovery Center established in declared counties or regionally. Representatives of federal, state, local, and volunteer organizations are made available to help disaster victims who are applying for assistance.

There are a wide range of individual disaster assistance programs available from The Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Federal Emergency management Administration (FEMA), as well as other State, Federal, and voluntary agencies.
