The deadline for Hurricane Irma survivors to register for FEMA individual disaster assistance has been extended to November 24.
Federal disaster assistance for individuals and families can include money for rental assistance, essential home repairs, personal property losses and other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance.
Individuals can register online at disasterassistance.gov. By phone, call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 or 800-462-7585. Due to high demand, lines may be busy. Please be patient, and try calling in the morning or evening when call volume may be low. The FEMA Helpline is open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week until further notice.
