FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers

FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) are accessible meeting places set up after a disaster. There you can learn about FEMA or other assistance programs. You may also ask questions about your case or seek guidance on other disaster-related issues. The services offered at each DRC may vary.

There are two ways to find a DRC near you:

  1. Use the DRC Locator to find addresses and DRC details. Find info like the hours of operation, services offered, and driving directions.
  2. Text DRC and a Zip Code to 43362. Example: DRC 01234. Using this option doesn’t add you to any messaging service. It’s just like doing a search on the Web. (Standard text rates may apply.)
