LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Arkansas residents who sustained losses or damage as a result of the January storms still can visit the Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) in Pulaski and White counties Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Beginning February 14, the DRCs will be closed on Sundays. In addition, the Disaster Field Office, toll-free application number (1-800-462-9029 or 1-800-462-7585 for those who are hearing impaired) and Helpline (1-800-525-0321 or, for the hearing impaired 1-800-660-8005) will be closed on Sundays and operating on the same six-day per week schedule as the DRCs.
The DRCs make it possible for people impacted by the severe storms, tornadoes, high winds and floods in January to meet with program assistance specialists face-to-face to learn more about the types of assistance available or to check on the status of a previously filed application. These specialists also can provide information on how victims can repair or reconstruct their property to avoid or lessen future storm or flood damage.
Disaster assistance programs include housing assistance; grants for serious need and necessary expenses not covered by insurance or other programs; and low-interest loans from the Small Business Administration (SBA) for disaster-damaged residential or business property.
