St. Lucie County and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) opened a Disaster Assistance Center at the Havert L. Fenn Center, 2000 Virginia Ave., to help residents and businesses with unmet needs following Hurricane Irma.
The Disaster Assistance Center opened today, Tuesday, Sept. 26 and will remain open through Thursday, Sept. 28 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. This one-stop hub allows residents to register with FEMA for assistance. Residents who have already registered with FEMA and have had difficulty obtaining services may also follow up at the center.
St. Lucie County was declared as a disaster area for Individual Assistance following Hurricane Irma. All residents are encouraged to register for assistance, even if they do not see immediate damage, as residents will not be able to file for or receive assistance after the deadline passes.
Residents can register for assistance at the Fenn Center, online at www.disasterassistance.gov, or by calling 800-621-3362 or TTY 800-462-7585. If you use 711 or Video Relay Service (VRS), call 800-621-3362. Operators are multilingual and calls are answered seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. CDT.
