Flood Relief and FEMA Information

FEMA Assistance

FEMA said residents and business owners who sustained losses in the designated counties can begin applying for assistance on Monday by registering online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov  or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA(3362) or 1-800-462-7585 (TTY) for the hearing and speech impaired. The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. MST seven days a week until further notice.

You will need the following information to complete the registration:

Social Security Number

You will be asked to provide your social security number; if you do not have a social security number, your household may still be eligible to receive assistance if there is a minor child in the household who is a U.S. Citizen, Non-Citizen National, or Qualified Alien with a social security number.

(NOTE: If you, your co-applicant or a minor child in the household are a U.S. Citizen, Non-Citizen National, or a Qualified Alien and do not have a social security number, FEMA will not be able to complete a registration. The Social Security number is required for Identity Verification purposes.)

If you are registering for a business, enter the social security number of the responsible party for the business, the social security number will be used for an identifier only.

If you are in need of further explanation/information call FEMA Helpline at (1-800-621-3362).
