St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County have just two weeks left to apply for FEMA disaster assistance before the Nov. 7 deadline. Missouri homeowners and renters who had property damage or losses caused by the July 25-28 severe storms and flooding, or those whose apartment complex was damaged and had to move out, may be eligible for federal disaster assistance.
There are several ways for renters and homeowners who were affected by the July disaster to apply for FEMA disaster assistance.
- Apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov
- Download and use the FEMA mobile app to apply
- Call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 to apply
- If you use a relay service, such as video relay (VRS), captioned telephone or other service, give FEMA the number for that service. The Helpline is open seven days a week. Press 2 for Spanish or 3 for an interpreter who speaks your language.
- Survivors may also apply in person at two Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC). Hours are Monday—Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Have the following information available:
- Phone number where you can be contacted
- Address at the time of the flooding
- Address where you are staying now
- Social Security Number of one member of the household
- Basic list of damage and losses
- Bank information if you choose direct deposit for any FEMA money you may be awarded
- Insurance Information if you have insurance, including the policy number
If you have homeowners, renters or flood insurance, you should file an insurance claim as soon as possible. FEMA cannot duplicate benefits for losses covered by insurance. If your policy does not cover all your damage expenses, you may be eligible for federal assistance.
