Disaster Recovery Centers provide disaster survivors with information from Florida state agencies, FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration. Survivors can get help applying for federal assistance and disaster loans, update applications and learn about other resources available.

There are several Disaster Recovery Centers operating throughout Southwest Florida. To find a center close to you, you can go online to: DRC Locator or floridadisaster.org, or you can text DRC along with your ZIP code to 43362.

It is not necessary to visit a center to apply. Survivors can go online to disasterassistance.gov, use the FEMA mobile app or call 800-621-3362. The line is open every day from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. ET. Help is available in most languages.

If you use a relay service, such as video relay, captioned telephone or other service, give FEMA the number for that service.
