FEMA Disaster Declaraction for Hurricane Ida

The federal declaration covers any storm damage that took place during Tropical Storm IDA between Wednesday, September 1, 2021, and Thursday, September 2, 2021. This relief is not just for residents who reported the damage on the day of the storm but anyone who may have experienced storm damage.

Under the latest declaration, residents and business owners who suffered losses in Bergen, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Passaic and Somerset counties will be able to request assistance at http://www.DisasterAssistance.gov or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA(3362). The TTY number for the hearing or speech impaired is 1-800-462-7585 (TTY). Calls will be accepted seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
 
Under the declaration, residents and business owners will be eligible for a series of federal programs, including low-cost loans for property losses not covered by insurance, and grants for temporary shelter and home repairs.
 
In addition, state and local governments and some nonprofit organizations in those same counties can receive federal funding for emergency work and repair or replace facilities damaged by the storms.
