Hurricane Preparedness: Are You Ready?
Don?t let hurricane season catch you off guard!

If you live in a hurricane risk area, take steps now to prepare. GovBenefits.gov suggests reviewing disaster assistance programs from the Federal government. Knowing the types of assistance available when disaster strikes could save you time and worry.

For example, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers several forms of assistance in Federally declared disaster areas. You may qualify for temporary housing, repair or replacement of your home, or permanent housing construction.

For information on how to apply for housing programs and more, visit DisasterAssistance.gov. This user-friendly website consolidates information on almost 60 forms of assistance from 17 Federal agencies. You can apply for some of these programs with a single, online application.

Below are some additional resources to help you prepare for hurricane season.
