            • FEMA Disaster Recovery Center

              At a FEMA Disaster Recovery Center (DRC), you can meet face to face with FEMA staff to learn how you can get help or ask questions about your application. DRCs are set up in convenient areas to make them easier to find.
              There are two ways to find a DRC:

              Use the DRC Locator to search for centers near you. You’ll also learn more about each DRC, like hours of operation, services offered, and driving directions.

              Find DRCs closest to your location by texting DRC and a Zip Code to 4FEMA (43362). Example: DRC 01234.

                Using this feature doesn’t add you to any messaging service. Think of it like doing a search on the Internet. (Standard text message rates apply.)
