Event Details

Residents of  Orange county who had damage or losses as a direct result of Hurricane Ida are encouraged to apply for FEMA assistance as soon as possible. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, Jan 31.

FEMA disaster assistance may be available to help pay uninsured or underinsured losses such as home repair for disaster-related damage, rental assistance, reimbursement for lodging expenses for individuals whose home was inaccessible or unhabitable during the disaster, medical expenses incurred from this disaster or other disaster-related needs.

  • You can ask a friend or relative over age 18 to act on your behalf if you are applying to FEMA, if you are unavailable for your FEMA inspection, or if you are appealing a FEMA decision about your eligibility for disaster relief.

You can also mail your consent to FEMA National Processing Service Center, P.O. Box 10055, Hyattsville, MD 20782-8055 or fax it to 800-827-8112. You and your representative can also visit a Disaster Recovery Center together to submit your consent. Find your nearest Disaster Recovery Center online at fema.gov/DRC.
