Yutu multi-agency updates


The Federal Emergency Management Agency Disaster Recovery Center at the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library will re-open for normal hours of operation from 8am to 5pm today and Nov. 15.

On Nov. 16, the DRC will relocate to the Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center in Susupe.

A DRC provides residents an opportunity to meet face-to-face with representatives from the Commonwealth, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the U.S. Small Business Administration to answer questions about temporary housing, home repairs, replacement of damaged personal property, home and business recovery funding, and other disaster-related needs.

Eligible applicants can register for assistance by calling (800) 621-3362, or applying online at disasterassistance.gov. The TTY number is 1-800-462-7585 for those who are speech or hearing-impaired.

Survivors who are unable to register for assistance before visiting a DRC are welcome to use the center’s phone banks and computers.
