There are three other ways to apply if you are unable to visit one of the centers: You can apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov, by calling 800-621-3362, or by using the FEMA mobile app. If you use a relay service, such as video relay (VRS), captioned telephone or other service, give FEMA the number for that service. When you apply, you will need to provide:
- A current phone number where you can be contacted.
- Your address at the time of the disaster and the address where you are now staying.
- Your Social Security Number.
- A general list of damage and losses.
- Banking information if you choose direct deposit.
- If insured, the policy number or the agent and/or the company name.
- If applicants are unable to locate important documentation, FEMA will work with them to identify other ways to verify.
The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. (local time) seven days a week until further notice.
The deadline for applications is Feb. 11, 2022.
FEMA financial assistance may include money for uninsured losses such as temporary housing, basic home repair or other disaster-related needs such as childcare, transportation and medical, funeral or dental expenses.
