Disaster Help - FEMA Resources

Residents can begin the application process by clicking this link (www.disasterassistance.gov), calling 800-621-FEMA (3362), or downloading the FEMA app. For additional information about FEMA’s disaster assistance resources and Individual Assistance program, visit www.disasterassistance.gov.

After Texans apply for disaster assistance, FEMA may call them to schedule an inspection of the damaged home, or to obtain more information to process the application. These calls may come from unfamiliar area codes or phone numbers.

It is important to answer the call. A FEMA inspection may be required to determine whether a home is safe, sanitary, functional and accessible. If an inspection cannot be scheduled, that may cause a delay in FEMA’s review of the application.

There is no charge for an inspection. The inspector will have FEMA photo ID and the application number. FEMA representatives never ask for money.

If you receive a call from someone saying they are a FEMA representative but you aren’t sure, call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 to verify the caller’s identity.
