In addition to visiting the DRC in Deltona, applications for FEMA assistance may be submitted at, through the FEMA mobile app or by calling 800-621-3362. Another DRC is available in Volusia County at the Florida Department of Health-Volusia, 1845 Holsonback Drive, Daytona Beach.

Representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will also be at the DRC to assist homeowners, renters, business owners, homeowners associations and most private nonprofit organizations to apply for loans, submit additional documentation, appeal a loan denial notice and provide status updates on an existing loan application.

The deadline to apply for FEMA assistance and/or an SBA physical property damage loan is Jan. 12 for Hurricane Ian and Feb. 13 for Hurricane Nicole.
