FEDERAL GOVERNMENT APPROVES MAJOR DISASTER DECLARATION FOR CA FIRES

People affected by the fires can apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov or call the FEMA Helpline at 1-800-621-FEMA (1-800-621-3362). This number is also for users of 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS). TTY users can call 1-800-462-7585. Individuals should first file claims with their insurance carriers. The consideration of FEMA grants or low-interest loans are dependent on insurance coverage and need.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

  • SBA offers federal low-interest disaster loans to businesses of all sizes, most private nonprofit organizations, homeowners and renters.
  • Businesses of any size may borrow up to $2 million to repair/replace disaster property damage.
  • Small businesses, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private nonprofit organizations may also borrow to help meet disaster caused working capital needs. The $2 million maximum applies to the combination of property damage and working capital loans.
  • If you are a homeowner or renter, FEMA may refer you to SBA. SBA disaster loans are the primary source of money to pay for repair or replacement costs not fully covered by insurance or other compensation.
  • Homeowners may borrow up to $200,000 to repair or replace their primary residence.
  • Homeowners and renters may borrow up to $40,000 to replace personal property, including vehicles.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
  • Register with FEMA at www.disasterassistance.gov. This is the fastest way to register for help.
  • Homeowners and renters should submit their SBA disaster loan application, even if they are not sure if they will need or want a loan. If SBA cannot approve your application, in most cases we refer you to FEMA’s Other Needs Assistance (ONA) program for possible additional assistance.
