Even if you registered for federal assistance because you suffered damage from Hurricane Laura, you must re-register for assistance if you incurred more damage from Hurricane Delta. Federal aid does not stop after applying for and/or receiving assistance from a single disaster. To register for assistance after losses from Hurricane Delta, visit DisasterAssistance.gov or call the FEMA helpline 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585). Click the link to learn more.
Hurricane Delta survivors in Louisiana should register with FEMA even if they have registered with the agency for Hurricane Laura. FEMA considers each disaster to be a separate event so survivors affected by multiple storms may receive help more than once.
First step is to register for assistance and there are multiple ways to register for assistance:
Go online at www.disasterassistance.gov
Download the FEMA app
Call 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585). The toll-free telephone numbers will operate
from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. (local time) daily. You can call the FEMA Helpline and speak with a representative if you have any questions. Click the link to learn more.
When two or more disasters are declared for the same designated area, FEMA works to ensure applicants receive all eligible help while preventing duplication of federal benefits. Click the link to learn what survivors need to know if they live in one of the five parishes eligible to register with FEMA for help after both Laura and Delta.
If you are a Hurricane Laura survivor and you experience new or additional damage as a result of Hurricane Delta, report that damage to your local emergency manager and to your insurance company as soon as you can.
It is important to help your local and state officials assess any new damage.
