FEMA disaster assistance resources available after Irma

Disaster assistance resources are now available for residents and businesses impacted by Hurricane Irma.

Residents can get federal disaster assistance through the FEMA mobile app - https://www.fema.gov/mobile-app - which is also available in the Apple App Store or on Google Play.

The app allows residents to upload and share photos of damage, access local resources, and toggle between English and Spanish.

Assistance can also be requested by filling out an online questionnaire and aid application at DisasterAssistance.gov or calling 1-800-621-3362 (TTY: 1-800-462-7585).

Those with access to the internet are encouraged to apply that way.
