The declaration makes federal Individual Assistance available to eligible residents in Barry, Butler, Carter, Howell, New Madrid, Ripley, Scott, Shannon, Stoddard, and Texas counties.Individual Assistance allows eligible residents to seek federal assistance with temporary housing, housing repairs, replacement of damaged belongings, vehicles, and other qualifying expenses.“This is important news for the Missouri families and communities hit hard by severe weather in late May,” Governor Parson said. “The State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) will be working closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to move the federal assistance process forward, which will provide millions of dollars in much needed recovery support for individuals, families, and local jurisdictions.”Individuals who sustained damage or losses due to severe weather between May 19 and 27 may now apply for FEMA disaster assistance online at www.disasterassistance.gov or by calling FEMA’s toll-free application line at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. Affected individuals are encouraged to document losses, photograph damage, and retain receipts.

Disaster assistance to eligible individuals generally falls into the following categories:Housing Assistance may be available for up to 18 months for displaced persons whose residences were heavily damaged or destroyed. Funding also can be provided for housing repairs and replacement of damaged items to make homes habitable.Disaster Grants are available to help meet other serious disaster related needs and necessary expenses not covered by insurance and other aid programs.
