✔ Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC)

Visit a federal-state Disaster Recovery Center for in-person disaster recovery assistance.

❗ Important

DRCs are available to those who need in-person assistance with the application process, do not have access to a computer/internet, have questions or issues, or are unsure where to begin.

Those who do not wish to visit a DRC, or are unable, can apply online:
FEMA: www.disasterassistance.gov or on the FEMA mobile app

💡 Tip!

Applicants can start the process online (see the FEMA and SBA disaster assistance links above).
