NEW YORK, N.Y. -- The Federal Emergency Management Agency has 30 Disaster Recovery Centers in New York to assist survivors of Hurricane Sandy.

In addition, roughly 1,000 FEMA community relations personnel are blanketing damaged neighborhoods, going door-to-door delivering information vital to recovery and encouraging residents with damaged property to register for assistance. They can help refer survivors to the proper resources for any unmet disaster needs, but they do not assess or document damage. FEMA inspectors will contact survivors directly after they have registered.

Individuals do not have to visit a Disaster Recovery Center to register with FEMA. Here are some alternatives: They may apply for FEMA assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling the toll-free registration number at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362).  If you have a speech disability or hearing loss and use a TTY, call 1-800-462-7585 directly; if you use 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS), call 1-800-621-3362.  Individuals may also register online at: www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by smart phone at m.fema.gov.  

To find the Disaster Recovery Center nearest you, the following options are available: Text DRC and a Zip Code to 43362 (4FEMA), and a text message will be sent back with the address. Also, check out the disaster recovery center locator at www.FEMA.gov/disaster-recovery-centers.

Recovery centers are one-stop shops for eligible storm survivors to get help as quickly as possible. More centers will open as sites are identified and approved.  Conditions at individual locations may vary and affect opening times.
