CLINTON, Miss. – Just two weeks remain to register for federal assistance for those who sustained damage during Hurricane Isaac.

Perhaps you registered, but what about your family, friends and neighbors? Don’t let them pass up help for which they may be eligible.

Help spread the word that the deadline to register with FEMA and to return an application for physical damage to the U.S. Small Business Administration is Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Those who have registered can track their claims and should notify FEMA of changes to their mailing addresses, phone numbers or email addresses and if they receive insurance settlements or discover additional damages.

Here is how to reach FEMA:

  • Go online at DisasterAssistance.gov.
  • Visit m.fema.gov from a Smartphone.
  • Dial 800-621-3362 or (TTY) 800-462-7585.
  • For those who use 711 Relay or Video Relay Services, call 800-621-3362.

The toll-free numbers are operated from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
