Disaster Assistance And Resources
Throughout the recovery period, it is important to monitor local radio or television reports and other media sources for information about where to get emergency housing, food, first aid, clothing, and financial assistance.
Direct assistance to individuals and families may come from any number of organizations. These organizations provide food, shelter, supplies and assist in clean-up efforts:
The Role of Federal Government in Recovery
In the most severe disasters, the federal government is also called in to help individuals and families with temporary housing, counseling (for post-disaster trauma), low-interest loans and grants, and other assistance. The federal government also has programs that help small businesses and farmers.
Most federal assistance becomes available when the President of the United States declares a “Major Disaster” for the affected area at the request of a state governor. FEMA will provide information through the media and community outreach about federal assistance and how to apply.
Disaster Public Education Web sites
You can broaden your knowledge of disaster preparedness topics presented by reviewing information provided at various government and non-government web sites.
These sites may be helpful in providing additional materials to help you prepare from, or recover from a disaster or emergency.
