Disaster Assistance Resources Are Available
Hillsborough County residents impacted by Hurricane Irma are eligible for individual disaster assistance. Residents can easily access federal disaster assistance through the FEMA mobile app available in the Apple App Store or on Google Play. The app allows residents to upload and share photos of damage, access local resources, and toggle between English and Spanish. Assistance can also be requested by filling out an online questionnaire and aid application at DisasterAssistance.gov or calling 1-800-621-3362 (TTY: 1-800-462-7585). Those with access to the Internet are encouraged to apply that way.
Hillsborough County continues to assess damage to businesses in order to provide resources for recovery. Business owners are highly encouraged to complete an online survey or report preliminary damage assessments to the State of Florida at FLVBEOC.org. Businesses may also be eligible for recovery assistance at SBA.gov/Disaster or 1-800-659-2955.
