Websites with important information:

 

FEMA coordinates response to disasters occurring within the United States. Those who have suffered significant damage to their homes can apply for government assistance on their home page: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)


Florida's Chief Financial Officer - Visit this site to read up on solving insurance-related issues after a natural disaster and to find a toll-free insurance consumer helpline. The helpline is available Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, EST.


Legal Answers related to Hurricane Irma -  The Florida Bar has raised the income qualifying cap for its online legal clinic, Florida Free Legal Answers, to ensure that Floridians can access the site and post questions related to Hurricane Irma. More than 500 attorneys signed up to volunteer for the site, which ordinarily matches low-income Floridians with attorneys who can answer basic legal questions. The site is a collaboration between the Florida Bar and the American Bar Association, which approved the qualifying cap increase.


The Children and Disasters webpage reflects resources available to support the integration and implementation of children’s disaster related needs into preparedness, planning, response and recovery efforts initiated by state, local and tribal governments, as well as stakeholders responsible for the temporary care of children.
