Shelter Assistance

November 4th, 2012 by admin

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), at the request of New Jersey and New York, has activated its Transitional Sheltering Assistance (TSA) program. This program allows eligible survivors who are in shelters and cannot return to their homes due to damages caused by Hurricane Sandy to stay in participating hotels or motels until more suitable housing accommodations are available.

The first step to receiving assistance is by registering with FEMA. Individuals who sustained losses in designated counties in New York and New Jersey must apply for assistance by calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or by registering using a web enabled mobile device at m.fema.gov, or online at www.disasterassistance.gov for those with internet access.
