Hurricane Sandy Survivors May Now Use FEMA Rental Assistance for Security Deposits

Edited by Susan Bainbridge

Hurricane Sandy survivors may now be able to use temporary rental assistance funds to help pay for a security deposit, the Federal Emergency Management Agency reported today.

Survivors may use up to one month of FEMA rent money to cover required security deposits. Those who need more help with rent can show a security deposit receipt to support a request for additional assistance. Survivors must also show a continuing need. This money may not be used to pay for telephone or television service or utilities. For more information, contact FEMA’s toll-free Helpline at 800-621-3362.

Federal and state officials encourage residents of Fairfield, Middlesex, New Haven and New London counties and the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan Tribal Nation located within New London County to apply for assistance as soon as possible.

Survivors can register online anytime day or night at www.DisasterAssistance.gov, or with a smartphone or other Web-enabled device at m.fema.gov. Survivors can also register, check status of applications or receive other assistance at the FEMA Helpline, 800-621-3362, from 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. Eastern, seven days a week, until further notice. The TTY number is 800-462-7585. Multilingual operators are available during the same hours at the close of the English message.

Registering for disaster assistance with other agencies or organizations does not register survivors for FEMA disaster assistance. Having FEMA flood insurance does not register policyholders for disaster assistance, nor does it disqualify anyone from applying for assistance. Flood insurance claims are handled separately.

Disaster recovery assistance is available without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, English proficiency or economic status. If you or someone you know has been discriminated against, call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-3362. For TTY, call 800-462-7585
