Apply for Financial Assistance for Storm Damage from Storms on September 10-13, 2023

Great news for North Providence residents. Please follow the instructions below to apply for financial assistance if you received damage from these storms that occurred on September 10-13, 2023.

PROVIDENCE, RI – Governor Dan McKee announced today that President Joseph Biden has approved federal disaster assistance for Providence County, Rhode Island to support those impacted by the storms that included severe flooding and tornadoes between from September 10-13, 2023.

President Biden’s action makes federal funding available to affected individuals and initiates SBA disaster assistance for businesses in Providence County. Individual assistance can include grants for temporary housing, home repairs and disaster legal services. SBA assistance includes low-interest loans to help business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.

“For the last several months, many of our cities and towns in Rhode Island have felt the lasting impacts from the September storm,” said Governor Dan McKee. “I thank President Biden and FEMA for their approval which will help affected families and businesses who suffered losses.”

To roll out the assistance available, President Biden has named Robert V. Fogel as the Federal Coordinating Officer for federal recovery operations in the affected areas.

Individuals and business owners who sustained losses in the designated areas can begin applying for assistance by registering online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov, by calling 1-800-621-3362 or by using the FEMA APP. If you use a relay service, such as video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service or others, give FEMA the number for that service.
