FEMA inspectors arriving in Bethel and St. Michael to assist residents with aid applications
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) -Federal Emergency Management Agency housing inspectors will be coming to Bethel and St. Michael to help survivors of the severe mid-September storm apply for assistance.
Teams will be arriving Saturday to register residents for assistance and answer questions concerning the application process and what will follow, according to a release from the agency.
Right after the registration process, inspectors will perform house inspections.
If residents are unable to apply with FEMA staff, they can register by calling 1-866-342-1699 or visiting www.disasterassistance.gov. When residents call, they should press 1 for English, 2 for Spanish, and 3 for all other languages. TTY callers dial 711. If calling from an out-of-state area code, dial 1-800-770-8973 for Alaska relay service.
If residents require an accommodation — such as spoken language resources, mobility assistance, or sign language interpreting services — they can call or text 907-727-6221 or email FEMAfirstname.lastname@example.org.
If residents feel they have experienced discrimination, they can call the FEMA Civil Rights Resource at 833-285-7448 or 800-462-7585 (TTY/TDD), or email FEMA-CivilRightsOffice@fema.dhs.gov. Inspectors will have appropriate federal identification and will never charge for assistance.
