Disaster Assistance Now Available for Flooding, Mudflow and Debris Flow Damage

SANTA FE, N.M – FEMA has amended New Mexico’s disaster declaration to include assistance for flooding, mudflows and debris flows for residents in Colfax, Lincoln, Mora, San Miguel and Valencia counties.

Residents who applied for FEMA assistance due to damage from the wildfires and now have damage from flooding, mudflows or debris flows do not need to apply again. Residents only need to update their disaster assistance application to include information on flood, mudflow or debris flow damage. To do this, visit the FEMA Disaster Recovery Center in Las Vegas, call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362, or visit disasterassistance.gov

Residents who have not applied for assistance from FEMA after the wildfires but now have flood damage are encouraged to apply. The fastest and easiest way to apply is online at disasterassistance.gov. New Mexicans can also call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 or visit the DRC in Las Vegas to apply.
