FEMA Expands Effort to Reach Ida Survivors

News Release

FEMA Expands Effort to Reach Ida Survivors

BATON ROUGE, La. – Several small, temporary FEMA disaster recovery centers have opened in hurricane-affected areas, while FEMA teams go door to door in communities– a combined effort by the state and FEMA to continue to reach survivors in need.

Specialists at these temporary disaster recovery centers are equipped to help survivors apply with FEMA, upload documents needed in the application process and answer questions about specific cases. In addition, Customer Service Representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will also be on hand to provide program information, answer any questions and explain how to apply for SBA’s low-interest disaster loans for businesses, private non-profits, homeowners and renters.

These recovery centers will be open on a short-term basis, while locations for longer-term facilities are being identified and set up. Survivors can visit any one of the temporary Disaster Recovery Centers (details below). Hours of operation and locations may be updated frequently, as they are temporary in nature.

Check the FEMA App or visit FEMA DRC Locator for all future updates. All centers will follow COVID-19 precautions and masks will be required by both FEMA specialists and survivors.

FEMA teams are also canvassing in affected parishes to connect directly with survivors who need help applying for FEMA assistance. Team members will wear FEMA attire and carry FEMA photo IDs. If a photo ID is not displayed, survivors are encouraged to ask to see it.
