Individual FEMA Assistance Now Available

The City of Deerfield Beach will like to notify residents that on September 11th, Broward County was added to the Disaster Declaration list of eligible counties for residents to receive individual FEMA assistance.

FEMA may provide Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) to eligible disaster survivors who are unable to return to their homes for an extended period and need shelter. TSA provides short-term lodging for eligible disaster survivors whose residence is uninhabitable or inaccessible.

To be eligible for TSA, individuals and households must:

  • Register with FEMA for assistance.
  • Pass identity and citizenship verification.
  • Have a pre-disaster primary residence located in a geographic area that is designated for TSA.
  • Be displaced from their pre-disaster primary residence as a result of the disaster.
  • Be unable to obtain lodging through another source.

For those eligible, FEMA will authorize and fund TSA through direct payments to participating hotels/motels.

Individuals can register at www.disasterassistance.gov or 1-800-621-3362;  TTY,  1-800-462-7585 directly.
