Program Description

FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) are accessible facilities and mobile offices set up after a disaster. We place DRCs in or near affected communities, in an area that offers equal access and resources to everyone.

You may visit a DRC to –

  • Learn about disaster assistance programs.
  • Apply for disaster assistance.
  • Check the status of your FEMA application.
  • Help you understand FEMA notices or letters.
  • Find housing and rental assistance information.
  • Get referrals to agencies that offer other assistance.
  • Meet with a Small Business Administration (SBA) agent.

The DRC Locator can help you find the locations, hours, and services of DRCs near you.
