FEMA Opens 2 Registration Centers in Haywood County

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Two FEMA registration centers are now open in Canton to help Tropical Storm Fred survivors apply for FEMA assistance.

FEMA mobile units are at these locations this weekend:

  • 13175 Cruso Rd, Canton, NC 28716 – East Fork Baptist Church
  • 77 Penland St., Canton, NC 28716 – Canton Recreation Park

Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

FEMA personnel at the centers can help residents in Buncombe, Haywood and Transylvania counties who were impacted by Tropical Storm Fred apply for federal assistance.

There are three other ways to register:

  • Go online to DisasterAssistance.gov, call 800-621-3362, or use the FEMA app for smartphones. If you use a relay service, such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel, give FEMA the number for that service. Lines are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. local time, seven days a week.

The deadline for applications is Nov. 8, 2021.

FEMA financial assistance may include money for temporary housing, basic home repair or other disaster-related needs such as childcare, transportation and medical, funeral or dental expenses.
