Wednesday, Sept. 28, is the Last Day to Apply with FEMA

I Was Told to Call the Small Business Administration

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has established facilities to provide business owners, nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters with answers to their questions about SBA’s disaster loan program, explain the application process and help each person complete their electronic loan application. These facilities can be either virtual or brick-and-mortar, depending on the circumstances surrounding the disaster and other factors. Click here for more information:

To obtain information about the type of facility serving your area, the location(s), and the hours of operation, visit the section below titled “Local Resources” or call the SBA\’s Disaster Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

I Applied for Assistance. What\'s Next?

You will receive notification letters from FEMA either by U.S. mail or by electronic correspondence explaining your next steps. If you reported during the application process that you received damage and are not able to live in your primary residence, an inspector will contact you by phone to schedule an inspection. All inspections will be conducted without entering your residence. When inspectors arrive at your home they will maintain social distance, visually assess the exterior of the residence, and verbally confirm the interior damage over the phone.

"Help After a Disaster" Brochures

Translated into 27 languages, the "Help After a Disaster" brochure is a tool that can be shared in your community to help people understand the types of FEMA assistance that may be available to support individuals and families in disaster recovery.

'; var text2='Volunteer and DonateRecovery can take many years after a disaster. There are many ways to help such as donating cash, needed items or your time. Learn more about how to help those in need.

Don’t self-deploy to disaster areas. Trusted organizations in the affected areas know where volunteers are needed. Work with an established organization to make sure you have the appropriate safety, training and skills needed to respond.

FEMA Voluntary Agency Liaisons (VALs) build relationships and coordinate efforts with voluntary, faith-based and community organizations active in disasters.
