SBA loans are the primary source of long-term recovery assistance. Completing the SBA loan application is also necessary to be considered for some forms of disaster assistance, but there is no requirement to take out a loan.

After the DRCs close, disaster help will still be available via FEMA's registration helpline, 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY 1-800-462-7585.

FEMA coordinates the federal government's role in preparing for, preventing, mitigating the effects of, responding to, and recovering from all domestic disasters, whether natural or man-made, including acts of terror.
