Deadline is Dec. 16 to register for FEMA assistance
Residents with damage from Hurricane Matthew are reminded that the Disaster Recovery Center – or DRC – continues to operate at the Florida Department of Health, 1845 Holsonback Drive, Daytona Beach. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Residents also can visit any Volusia County’s 13 library branches to apply for FEMA assistance online. If residents do not have a library card, a guest pass will be issued to use the public-access computers. People also can bring their own equipment and access the free Wi-Fi to complete the online FEMA application.
The deadline to register for FEMA assistance is Dec. 16. Only one registration per household is necessary.
To date, more than 1,400 people have visited the DRC to meet with FEMA, the Small Business Administration and other groups offering assistance. Residents are not required to visit the DRC to get assistance from FEMA; they can call 800-621-3362 to speak with a FEMA representative. When calling, please make sure to have your nine-digit FEMA registration number. Residents can also visit www.DisasterAssistance.gov to register.
To date, FEMA has provided about $16.1 million in grants to help people with basic home repairs, rental assistance, and other needs not covered by insurance. Of that, more than $5 million has been given to residents of Volusia County. FEMA has also paid about $44 million in flood insurance claims to Florida residents affected by Hurricane Matthew.
