Residents affected by the recent flooding can apply for assistance by visiting www.disasterassistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362). In order to be eligible, residents will need to provide the following:

  • Your Social Security number
  • Current and pre-disaster address
  • A telephone number where you can be contacted
  • Insurance information
  • Total household annual income
  • A routing and account number from your bank (only necessary if you want to have disaster assistance funds transferred directly into your bank account)
  • A description of your losses that were caused by the disaster

Note: Even if you have already submitted your damage information to the Village, you must apply directly with FEMA in order to be considered for federal assistance.
