Tennessee homeowners and renters in Dickson, Hickman and Houston counties who were affected by the severe storms and flooding on August 21, 2021, may now apply for FEMA disaster assistance. These additional counties join Humphreys County which was previously approved for disaster assistance.
Call 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585) to apply. The toll-free telephone lines operate from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. local time, seven days a week. Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption, or CapTel should update FEMA with their specific number assigned to that service.
You can also register via smartphone or tablet using the FEMA App, or at www.disasterassistance.gov
Disaster assistance may include financial help with temporary lodging and home repairs, along with other programs to assist those recovering from the flooding.
State and local governments and certain private nonprofits in Hickman and Humphreys counties are now eligible for disaster assistance. Federal funding is available on a cost-sharing basis for debris removal and emergency protective measures, including direct federal assistance, under FEMA’s Public Assistance program.
