More About This Disaster
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
The fastest way to apply is through DisasterAssistance.gov. You can also apply through the FEMA mobile app or by calling 1-800-621-3362. If you use a video relay service, captioned telephone service, or other communication services, please provide FEMA the specific number assigned for that service.
I Was Told to Call the Small Business Administration
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has established facilities to provide business owners, nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters with answers to their questions about SBA’s disaster loan program, explain the application process and help each person complete their electronic loan application. These facilities can be either virtual or brick-and-mortar, depending on the circumstances surrounding the disaster and other factors. Click here for more information: DisasterLoanAssistance.sba.gov/ela/s/
To obtain information about the type of facility serving your area, the location(s), and the hours of operation, visit the section below titled “Local Resources” or call the SBA’s Disaster Customer Service Center at 1-800-659-2955 or email DisasterCustomerService@sba.gov.
I Applied for Assistance. What's Next?
You will receive notification letters from FEMA either by U.S. mail or by electronic correspondence explaining your next steps. If you reported during the application process that you received damage and are not able to live in your primary residence, an inspector will contact you by phone to schedule an inspection. All inspections will be conducted without entering your residence. When inspectors arrive at your home they will maintain social distance, visually assess the exterior of the residence, and verbally confirm the interior damage over the phone.

Disaster Recovery Centers
Locations to apply for FEMA assistance will soon be opening in several counties affected by flooding. FEMA will open both Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) and Mobile Registration Intake Centers (MRICs) across Carbon, Park, and Stillwater counties. All locations can help homeowners, renters, and business owners who were affected by June’s severe flooding.
A Disaster Recovery Center, jointly operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Montana Disaster and Emergency Services, will open in Carbon County. Representatives from FEMA, the Small Business Administration and other agencies will be at the center to explain disaster assistance programs and help eligible survivors apply for aid.
DRCs are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday – Saturday and 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays.
Mobile Registration Centers
FEMA mobile registration centers are open daily 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to help with applying for assistance, updating your information, and filing appeals. Open Now:
- Lee-County: Lee County Cooperative Extension Service Community Center, 500 Happy Top Road, Beattyville, KY 41311 (Hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday, and Monday; 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday) (open Friday, Sept. 16 - Monday, Sept. 19 and Friday, Sept. 23 - Monday, Sept. 26)
Verifying Home Ownership or Occupancy
FEMA is required to verify you lived at the address in your application as your primary residence before providing most types of IHP Assistance. FEMA is also required to verify you owned your home before providing Home Repair or Replacement Assistance.
As part of our effort to make the disaster assistance process quicker and reduce the burden on applicants, we try to verify occupancy and ownership by using an automated public records search.
If we cannot verify you lived in or owned the home that you listed in your application, we will ask you to provide documents to prove occupancy and/or ownership to help us determine if you are eligible for assistance.
How to Help
Volunteer and Donate
Recovery can take many years after a disaster. There are many ways to help such as donating cash, needed items or your time. Learn more about how to help those in need.
Don’t self-deploy to disaster areas. Trusted organizations in the affected areas know where volunteers are needed. Work with an established organization to make sure you have the appropriate safety, training and skills needed to respond.
FEMA Voluntary Agency Liaisons (VALs) build relationships and coordinate efforts with voluntary, faith-based and community organizations active in disasters.
