FEMA Disaster Recovery Center and Mobile Registration Intake Centers Now Open to Help Residents Impacted by January Storms
Community members encouraged to apply now for disaster assistance before the filing period closes on July 25, 2023
SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CALIF. – County of Santa Clara officials urge community members who have been impacted by the January storms to apply for federal disaster assistance. The application period is open now until July 25, 2023, to provide affected community members an opportunity to seek financial assistance for disaster-related costs.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) amended its Major Disaster Declaration on May 25 to include Santa Clara County for the Individual Assistance Program, which includes temporary emergency housing or money for home repairs of primary residences and help with medical, dental, personal property, transportation, and moving-and-storage expenses that are disaster-related.
“Since the storms began, the County and our partners have been working to get as much assistance as possible to help community members who were impacted,” said Darrell Ray, Deputy Director of the Office of Emergency Management. “If you were affected by this disaster, be sure to apply now. There are a number of locations available to help walk residents through the process of getting the resources they need.”
To provide on-site assistance, the County has set up a FEMA Disaster Recovery Center (DRC), where officials from FEMA and several state agencies will be available to help residents with registration:
