WASHINGTON -- FEMA announced federal disaster assistance has been made available to Washington supplementing state, tribal and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by flooding and mudslides from Nov. 13 to 15.

The President's action makes federal funding available to affected individuals in Skagit, Clallam and Whatcom counties and the Lummi Nation, Nooksack Indian Tribe and Quileute Tribe. Assistance may include:

  • Grants for temporary housing and home repairs
  • Low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses
  • Other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster

Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide.

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