Mobile Recovery Centers:
A mobile disaster recovery center vehicle will be making short visits to several Vermont communities beginning Friday September 30th, in Middlebury.

The following is the schedule of the visits:

Windsor County
Bethel Town Hall, 318 Main St., Bethel 05032
Opening noon – 6 p.m., Friday, Sept. 30;
8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday, Oct.1; and 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 2

Windsor County
South Royalton Journey Church
412 S. Windsor St., South Royalton 05068
Opening noon – 6 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 6;
8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Friday, Oct. 7; and 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 8

The mobile vehicle will provide the phone and computer connectivity for a recovery center. These centers are staffed with disaster recovery specialists from various federal, state and local agencies and organizations who can answer questions about disaster assistance programs.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s individual assistance program covers expenses for temporary housing, home repairs, replacement of damaged personal property and other disaster-related needs, such as medical, dental or transportation costs not covered by insurance or other programs.

Homeowners and renters may also be eligible for low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration. Some applicants may receive an SBA loan application after registering with FEMA. No one is obligated to take out a loan. But if they don’t complete the application, they will not be considered for some federal grants.

Anyone who has a question about disaster loans may visit a disaster recovery center to speak with an SBA representative. Staff specialists are also available at the centers to answer other disaster assistance questions. Specialists at the recovery centers can refer applicants to voluntary agencies and provide information to reduce damage in possible future disasters.

Disaster officials encourage those affected by the storm to register with FEMA before visiting a disaster recovery center by calling toll-free 800-621-FEMA (3362), online or via a web-enabled mobile device at . Multilingual registration assistance is available. Those with a speech disability or hearing loss who use a TTY can call 800-462-7585 directly; or 800-621-3362 if using 711 or Video Relay Service
