New Yorkers Can Now Get Disaster Assistance & Report Damage to FEMA

President Biden has approved an expedited Major Disaster Declaration that will help provide federal financial relief for New Yorkers recovering from the flooding damage caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ida. The counties covered by the declaration include: BronxQueensKings (Brooklyn), and Richmond (Staten Island).

Apply for disaster assistance and report damage to your property:

If you use a relay service (a videophone, InnoCaption, CapTel, etc.), please provide your number assigned to that service. FEMA must be able to contact you. Be aware that phone calls from FEMA may appear to come from an unidentified number.
