The Office of Emergency Management has received confirmation today that we are now included in the Presidential Declaration for Individual Assistance.
Those residents that had damage to their homes can start applying to FEMA for Individual Assistance. There are several ways to apply:
Register online at www.disasterassistance.gov (if you have already applied with FEMA it is not necessary to apply again)
Call toll-free: 1-800-621-FEMA (3362)
FEMA inspectors will begin making appointments with residents that applied for assistance after they submit their necessary insurance documentation to FEMA.
In all presidentially declared counties for Individual Assistance, when an applicant registers with FEMA and becomes eligible for a Damaged Housing Inspection, the inspection is sent to a FEMA contractor inspector. The inspector contacts the applicant to set up an appointment for a time and date and also goes over what documentation needs to be provided for proof of residency.
Please be vigilant and check ID badge before letting anyone into your home. Watch for fraud, if you suspect criminal activity contact law enforcement.
Any other updates will be posted on our website www.mctxoem.org
