Need Help After The Storm? Visit A Disaster Recovery Center

NEW JERSEY – When Hurricane Sandy survivors need face-to-face help, the Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) is the place to go. From Cumberland to Sussex, customer service representatives are ready to help in many ways and in multiple languages.

Thirty DRCs are now open seven days a week. Hours today until Thanksgiving are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (except for Bay Head, which is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. while its curfew remains in effect.)

All DRCs will be closed Thanksgiving Day and will reopen Friday, Nov. 23, with new hours: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., except for Bay Head, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Meet face-to-face with representatives from the New Jersey Office of Emergency Services (NJOES), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Small Business Administration (SBA) and other government and volunteer agencies to learn about:

• Housing assistance and rental resources.

• The status of an application.

• Letters from FEMA.

• SBA’s disaster loan programs and how to complete a loan application.

• Multilingual assistance.

• Strengthening a home.

• Counseling services.

• Other resources that may be available.

FEMA does not distribute cash, checks, debit cards or vouchers at recovery centers.
