Federal assistance announced for California storm and flooding recovery efforts

San Diego, California – President Biden has officially recognized the severe impact of the storm and flooding that struck California from January 21 to January 23, 2024, by declaring a major disaster in the state. This declaration opens the door for federal assistance to enhance state, tribal, and local efforts aimed at recovery in the affected regions.

Supporting Recovery in San Diego County

The president’s declaration specifically brings federal funding to the residents of San Diego County, offering a much-needed boost to the recovery process. Individuals affected by the disaster can access a variety of financial support mechanisms. This includes grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to assist with uninsured property losses, and other programs designed to aid individuals and business owners in bouncing back from the disaster’s impact.

Moreover, federal funding will be available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures across the state. This strategic approach aims not only to address the current damage but also to fortify the state against future disasters. Ms. N. Allison Pfaendler of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been appointed to coordinate federal recovery operations in the impacted areas.

Applying for Assistance

For those affected, immediate action can be taken to apply for the available assistance, marking a critical step toward recovery. The process has been made accessible to ensure that all who need support can receive it without undue burden.

Residents and business owners who have suffered losses in the designated areas are encouraged to start the application process for assistance. They can do so by visiting www.DisasterAssistance.gov, calling 800-621-FEMA (3362), or by using the FEMA App. Assistance is accessible to all, including those who use relay services like video relay service (VRS) or captioned telephone service, by providing FEMA with the number for that service.

As the state continues to assess the damage, additional designations for assistance may be announced, highlighting the ongoing nature of the recovery efforts.
