Federal disaster aid has been approved for residents of Contra Costa County. Residents who have sustained property and business damage from the 12/31/22 – 1/30/23 series of Winter storms can seek assistance directly from FEMA. Residents should apply online at www.disasterassistance.gov or call 1-800-621-3362. Applying does not guarantee that assistance will be awarded.
Once the resident has registered, there will be information on the next steps and available programs. The website has many languages to choose from if English is not the primary language. At this time, there is no local avenue for Individual Assistance applications; therefore, residents must go through FEMA to apply for assistance.
If you have additional questions, this link will take you to a FEMA flyer that explains all the available programs: https://www.fema.gov/assistance…
Note: If you have insurance, you should file a claim with your insurance company immediately. FEMA assistance cannot aid with losses already covered by insurance.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will open a Disaster Recovery Center in partnership with Contra Costa County to help residents impacted by the storms from Dec. 31, 2022, to Jan. 30, 2023, to connect directly with recovery resources. The Center has opened in Danville during these dates and times, depending on need:
Location: 510 La Gonda Way, Danville, CA 94526
Time: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily
Dates: Feb. 15 to March 1
