WINDSOR, Conn. – The FEMA-State Disaster Recovery Centers in Connecticut will now be open later to give survivors more time to visit one of the centers.

Specialists from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the U.S. Small Business Administration are on hand at the centers to answer questions and provide information on the types of assistance available to survivors.

People who suffered losses can get person-to-person assistance at the centers from specialists skilled in disaster-related subjects.

If possible, before visiting a center, register online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov, at m.fema.gov on the browser of a smartphone or web device; or call 800-621-3362. TTY users call 800-462-7585. The toll-free numbers are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Help in many languages is available.

Disaster recovery specialists at the center can help with registration, check an individual’s case, answer questions about their claim, or review information needed to process their claim. Recovery specialists also can supply contacts for other programs that may be able to help.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is the federal government’s primary source of money for the long-term rebuilding of disaster-damaged private property. SBA helps homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes, and private nonprofit organizations fund repairs or rebuilding efforts and covers the cost of replacing lost or disaster-damaged personal property. These disaster loans cover losses not fully compensated by insurance or other recoveries and do not duplicate benefits of other agencies or organizations.

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.
