FEMA and SBA information for Storm Survivors

Posted by on in Community Events


The number to call to register with FEMA, and to start the process of applying for a very low interest loan with SBA, is 1-800-621-FEMA(3362). You can also register online at www.disasterassistance.gov or through your smart phone at m.fema.gov. FEMA has also opened a Disaster Recovery Center at the Festival of Lights building at 2200 E Washington St in East Peoria.

Registration Deadline is January 27, 2014

When meeting with FEMA representatives, remember to have the following things handy:

• Insurance declaration information and insurance information

• Social Security number

• Current telephone number or contact information

• Checking account information (for direct deposit of FEMA grant money)


Is it necessary to register if you're a homeowner whose property was insured? Deanna said many homeowners are finding that their property values are being depreciated by their insurance companies. The assistance that might be available to a homeowner could help cover the shortfall left by insurance, up to around $32,000.
