Disaster survivors with flood or homeowners/renters insurance are encouraged to apply for federal disaster assistance whenever there is a flood and a Presidential Disaster Declaration has been granted to help its survivors. For flood insurance policyholders who apply and are found eligible, federal disaster assistance could help pay for things like temporary housing assistance, which is not covered by flood insurance. The only way to know if you are eligible for this assistance is available, is to apply.
Registering online, at DisasterAssistance.gov is the quickest way to register for federal disaster assistance. If you do not have access to the internet, you may register by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362) or 800-462-7585 (TTY). If you use 711 relay or Video Relay Service (VRS), call 800-621-3362 directly.
