The Disaster Assistance Improvement Program’s (DAIP) mission is to provide disaster survivors with information, support, services, and a means to access and apply for disaster assistance through joint data–sharing efforts between federal, tribal, state, local, and private sector partners.
Disaster Distress Helpline
The Disaster Distress Helpline is a 24/7, 365-days-a-year, national hotline dedicated to providing immediate crisis counseling for people who are experiencing emotional distress related to any natural or human–caused disaster.

FEMA Disaster Fraud
Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is raising awareness that hurricane disaster survivors, and their friends and family, must be alert for false rumors, scams, identity theft, and fraud. You should contact the hotline if you suspect disaster fraud.
FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers
FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) are accessible meeting places set up after a disaster. There you can learn about FEMA or other assistance programs. You may also ask questions about your case or seek guidance on other disaster–related issues. The services offered at each DRC may vary.
