(As of Nov. 29, 2020, unless otherwise noted)

  • The deadline to apply with FEMA for disaster assistance is Nov. 30. Survivors may apply by visiting DisasterAssistance.gov, checking the FEMA mobile app, or by calling 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585). The toll-free telephone lines operate 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. PST, seven days a week.
  • 1,589 individuals and households have been approved for more than $21 million in federal grants through FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program.

  • Nearly $4 million in grants have been approved for personal property, transportation and other disaster-related serious needs for 1,382 applicants.
  • 2,333 home inspections have been issued with 99 percent completed.

Direct Temporary Housing:

  • FEMA has begun licensing-in of eligible survivor families from Jackson County into temporary housing units.
  • Temporary housing is provided one of two ways: recreational vehicles (RVs) and Manufactured Housing Units (mobile homes).
  • The units are placed in commercial parks or in group sites that will be constructed by FEMA for this purpose.
  • Survivor housing units are chosen by FEMA based on the survivor family composition and needs, as well as to ensure that requirements for access or functional needs are met.
  • Ongoing participation in the program, which can last until March 2022, depends on each survivor’s efforts to find a permanent housing solution and following the rules established by the park and FEMA.  

Outreach to Survivors:

  • There have been two Speaker’s Bureau events in Jackson County, providing information regarding FEMA programs throughout disaster-affected communities.
