Renters and homeowners in San Bernardino County now have an additional 45 days to apply for FEMA assistance due to the severe storms and flooding that took place in February and March. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has extended the deadline to apply for financial aid until July 20, 2023.

FEMA disaster assistance cannot return you to your pre-disaster condition. It will help you into a safe, secure, and sanitary situation. If your home is damaged, you may receive funds to repair it; if it’s unlivable, you may receive rental assistance for temporary housing. FEMA’s Individuals and Households Assistance Program may also provide funds to replace damaged clothing, furniture, or other contents of your home not covered by insurance.

There are three ways to apply for FEMA: Online at, the FEMA mobile app, or by calling FEMA at 800-621-3362Helpline operators are available from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m. PT daily.
