FEMA will give you an application number. You must include this number with any other proof you give FEMA or to check the status of your application.
Within 3 to 5 business days of you completing the application, FEMA will send you a letter. The letter will say if you must give FEMA any extra documentation.
There are a few ways you can give FEMA more documentation:
- Sign up for and upload to your own DisasterAssistance.gov account
- By fax: (855) 261-3452
- By mail: P.O. BOX 10001, Hyattsville, MD 20782
* If you mail FEMA something, they will not return it to you.
If you haven't given FEMA the additional information they asked for within 7 to 10 business days of your application, call the Helpline back to explain why.
