At the recovery centers, specialists from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration are providing information on available services, explaining assistance programs and helping survivors complete or check the status of their applications.  

  • The FEMA application deadline is October 7.
  • If you need help applying, FEMA can assist you at a Disaster Recovery Center.  
  • No appointment is necessary to visit a Disaster Recovery Center. Walk-ins are welcome.  
  • People directly affected by flooding in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County may visit any recovery center for one-on-one help.

FEMA may be able to provide Individual Assistance grant money that does not have to be repaid for:

  • Rental Assistance if you need to relocate because of flood damage
  • Personal Property that was damaged or destroyed by flooding
  • Lodging Reimbursement if you had to stay in a hotel temporarily
  • Basic Home Repairs for homeowners whose primary residence was damaged by flooding
  • Other Serious Needs caused by recent flooding

In addition to the assistance listed, please note the following:

  • Only one application per household.
  • FEMA does not pay for lost or spoiled food.
  • By law, FEMA is not allowed to duplicate insurance payments or assistance provided by other sources.

Homeowners and Renters: After applying with FEMA, if you have been referred to SBA for a disaster loan, please complete and submit the application. Submitting the SBA application makes it possible for you to be considered for additional grants if you are turned down for an SBA loan.

If you qualify for a loan, you will have that resource available if you choose to accept it.

Help with your SBA application is available at any of the Disaster Recovery Centers.
