Lingering property damage or contractor fraud after Hurricane Ian? These are just two of many challenges residents face in the storm’s wake.

To assist Florida residents and business owners, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has opened a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in Hillsborough County. The center is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily, including Saturday and Sunday. You do not have to be a Hillsborough County resident to visit the DRC or to receive assistance.

The DRC helps Hurricane Ian survivors with applying for federal assistance, disaster loans, updating applications, and learning about other available resources.
