For those Typhoon Mawar survivors who received initial rental assistance, it’s important to stay in touch with FEMA, as you may be eligible for continued rental assistance. The initial grant is for the first two months. If you have exhausted the initial amount and need more, you may apply for continued assistance in three-month periods – up to 18 months from the President’s major disaster declaration, or November 28, 2024.
There are a few simple steps to apply for Continued Temporary Housing Assistance:
Call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-3362 and ask for an Application for Continued Temporary Housing Assistance. Helpline operators can arrange interpretation in many languages if requested.
You may upload the completed application to your disaster account at DisasterAssistance.gov or fax it to 800-827-8112, or mail it to FEMA, P.O. Box 10055, Hyattsville MD 20782-8055.
You will need to submit the following documents with the completed application:
Pre- and post-disaster income for household members 18 and older.
Proof of pre-disaster housing costs (copy of lease and utility bills, renter’s insurance, mortgage statements, real estate taxes, homeowner’s insurance, etc.)
