To ensure all affected Rhode Islanders have time to register for FEMA aid, the registration deadline has been extended through midnight February 13. Register even if you have insurance or think you would not qualify. Let FEMA determine if your family is eligible for aid. You may have costs you do not realize could be reimbursed. In addition to homeowners, renters may also be eligible for help if they had Sandy-related costs.
Register online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov or via smartphone at m.fema.gov. Individuals may also register by calling FEMA at 800-621-FEMA (3362) daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Multilingual recovery specialists are available. Those with a speech disability or hearing loss who use a TTY can call 800-462-7585 directly; or 800-621-3362 if using 711 or Video Relay service.
