Disaster Aid

If you have damage from the recent flooding here is how you should proceed to receive federal disaster assistance.

First, apply (register) for aid. To do so visit www.disasterassistance.gov online, or call 1-800-621-3362. For more information see the checklist provided below.

Second, document everything. Take plenty of pictures from many different angles. Try to get high water marks in the shots and give perspective. Keep all your receipts for any repairs. Keep track of everything.

Third, contact your homeowners insurance policy to begin that process. Even if you are sure your claim will be denied, you need that denial letter to receive federal disaster assistance.
