Help for Individuals and Families After a Disaster
If you have insurance, you should file a claim with your insurance company immediately. FEMA assistance cannot aid with losses already covered by insurance.
Apply for Disaster Assistance
I Was Told to Call the Small Business Administration
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has established a Virtual Disaster Loan Outreach Center for homeowners, renters and business owners to provide answers to questions about SBA’s disaster loan program, explain the application process and help each person complete their electronic loan application.
Virtual Business Recovery Center & Virtual Disaster Loan Outreach Center
Mondays – Fridays | 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. | FOCWAssistance@sba.gov | (916) 735-1500
I Applied for Assistance. What's Next?
You will receive notification letters from FEMA either by U.S. mail or by electronic correspondence. You may need to verify your identity or complete a home inspection. All inspections will be conducted by phone due to COVID-19 and the need to protect the safety and health of our workforce and survivors.
