Although the April 13 registration deadline has passed, FEMA and its partners, including U.S. Small Business Administration and numerous volunteer agencies, remain in New York and will continue helping survivors until the job is done.

STAY IN TOUCH WITH FEMA

As the recovery process continues, Hurricane Sandy survivors should notify FEMA when you:

  • Change primary phone numbers. Good, reliable contact information – such as a work or cell number – is important;
  • Move to another address or change current mailing address;   
  • Get a letter from FEMA and have questions about it;
  • Receive an insurance settlement;
  • Want to check the status of your application; or
  • Want to add direct deposit information.
