FEMA and the Small Business Administration (SBA), at the request of the State of Florida, have extended the application deadline for persons impacted by Hurricane Ian to Jan. 12, 2023. The application deadline to file for Economic Injury through the SBA is June 29, 2023.
In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, the Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) at the Florida Department of Health-Volusia, 1845 Holsonback Drive, Daytona Beach, will close at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 23, and will reopen at 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 28.
Persons may apply for FEMA assistance electronically by visiting disasterassistance.gov, using the FEMA mobile app or calling 800-621-3362. For SBA, an online loan application may be found at disasterloanassistance.sba.gov/ela/s/, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 800-659-2955.
Currently, only persons who sustained damage from Hurricane Ian may apply for FEMA and SBA assistance as the federal government has not declared Volusia County as a federal disaster zone resulting from Hurricane Nicole. Persons who sustained damage only from Hurricane Nicole should call Volusia County Emergency Management at 386-254-1500 to learn about available resources.
