Recovery specialists from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, North Carolina Emergency Management and the U.S. Small Business Administration will be available to speak with you face-to-face to answer questions you may have regarding the disaster assistance process, other assistance available and even help you register if you haven't already.

If you have phone and/or internet access, you may register in one of the following ways: 

Online at DisasterAssistance.gov. Call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362. It is the same number if you use 711 or Video Relay Service. Call 800-462-7585 if you are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability and you use a TTY 

Download the FEMA Mobile App and apply. 

Survivors requiring a reasonable accommodation such as American Sign Language interpreting, Braille large print, etc. while visiting a disaster recovery center may call the Helpline number for support. The toll-free numbers are open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Help is available in most languages, and information on the registration process is available in ASL at http://www.fema.gov/media- library/assests/videos/111546. 

FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits. Survivors should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.
