FEMA is committed to assisting survivors affected by Hurricane Irma throughout the recovery process. FEMA encourages you to make your requests known and get the support you need.
To date, more than 2.1 million registrations have been received.
Asking for and receiving FEMA assistance does not change benefits from Social Security, food stamps, Medicare, Medicaid, veteran’s services and other federal programs.
FEMA works with private and nonprofit sectors to facilitate your access to facilities, programs and information. These collaborations occur in conjunction with local, tribal, state and federal governmental partners.
Universal accessibility is a priority, and all Disaster Recovery Centers have accessible parking, ramps and restrooms.
