Harvey Applications:


Hotline: 1-800-621-3362


  • Regardless of flood insurance coverage, residents should register for aid with FEMA.
  • Residents with insurance must submit a claim with their insurance carrier FIRST before applying FEMA.
  • Residents that are denied FEMA coverage can reapply by starting a new FEMA application.
  • Only 1 person from each residence should apply for FEMA. If multiple people for each house apply, it'll delay the application process further.


When you register for disaster assistance either online or by phone, you will

need the following to complete your application:

  • Social Security number
  • Address of the location where the damage occurred (pre-disaster address)
  • Current mailing address
  • Current telephone number
  • Insurance information
  • Total household annual income
  • Routing and account number for your checking or savings account (this allows FEMA to directly transfer disaster assistance funds into your bank account).
  • A description of your disaster-caused damage and losses
