A Disaster Recovery Center is a readily accessible facility or mobile office where applicants may go for information about FEMA or other disaster assistance programs, or for questions related to your case.
Some of the services may include:
NOTE: You can register for assistance at a Disaster Recovery Center or you can register online or by calling 1 (800) 621-FEMA (3362). The TTY number is 1 (800) 462-7585 for those who are speech- or hearing-impaired.
Automatic partial replacement of SNAP benefits for current recipients.
Application to recover benefits for food purchased and lost due to the storm. These should be turned in to any food stamp office. I’m still looking into how we can facilitate that process.
