LANSING, Mich. – Two Disaster Recovery Centers in Wayne (South East) and Wayne (Detroit) County are scheduled to close permanently May 1.

Recovery centers help residents in Eaton, Ingham, Ionia, Kent, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland and Wayne counties continue their recovery after the Aug. 24-26, 2023, severe storms, tornadoes and flooding. 

The registration period for federal disaster assistance ends on Wednesday, May 8, 2024.

You don’t need to visit a disaster recovery center to apply for FEMA assistance or to check on the status of your application. 

The easiest way to reach FEMA is to call the toll-free Helpline at 800-621-3362. Specialists are available 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. to help you apply, answer your questions and provide referrals to resources. Language translation is available. If you use a relay service such as video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service or others, give FEMA your number for that service when you apply. 

You also may go online to or download the FEMA App.

The two remaining disaster recovery centers will close permanently at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 1. They are located at:

Wayne County Community College 

Downriver Campus​

21000 Northline Road ​

Taylor, MI 48180


Butzel Family Recreation Center

7737 Kercheval Ave.

Detroit, MI 48214

Hours are 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday, except for the Wayne County (South East) center in Taylor, which closes at 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Both centers are closed Sundays. You may visit either center for assistance through May 1.

FEMA and the SBA specialists at the disaster recovery centers can help you upload documents, answer questions and provide information on available resources. The centers serve as one-stop shops for survivors who need one-on-one help.
