FEMA is heading to town!

FEMA is here to help you in the short term recovery processes quickly after a declared disaster. They do not have the knowledge to advise you for your long term recovery other than giving you a simple damage estimate and offering you up to SBA for loans.
They are designed to help with temporary housing and to help you find long term recovery assistance with other agencies such as the Small Business Administration (SBA).
