FEMA has financial assistance available for both businesses and individuals

Dear Member,

We hope everyone has made it through the recent storms with minimal damage to property and the supporting infrastructure, and that our team members are housed and safe. There’s no doubt we have all been impacted by the storms and the resulting loss of business – for some, the impacts have been significant.

At the federal level, FEMA has financial assistance available for both businesses and individuals, and at the state level, individuals are able to apply for disaster unemployment insurance as well.

To apply for federal financial assistance, you can now go to www.disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-3362.

Federal disaster loans for businesses, private nonprofits, homeowners and renters can be requested at www.disasterloanassistance.sba.gov.

Individuals can apply for disaster unemployment insurance at www.edd.ca.gov. When filing a claim online, please answer “Yes” to the question “Are you unemployed as a direct result of recent disaster in California?”, and then follow the prompts.

We will forward additional information as it becomes available.
