FEMA approves Individual Assistance for Dutchess County


POUGHKEEPSIE – The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended Individual Assistance to Dutchess County residents. The announcement follows successful requests for an Emergency Declaration and Public Assistance.

Individuals in Dutchess can apply with FEMA in a number of ways:

  • Apply online at DisasterAssistance.gov.
  • Constituents may call the application phone number at 1-800-621-3362. If using video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service or others, please give FEMA the number for that service.
  • Visit a Disaster Recovery Center.
  • Contact Rep. Delgado’s Office via email or phone 1-845-443-2930.

“This is very welcome news for the citizens and business owners throughout Dutchess County,” said County Executive Marc Molinaro. “Our Department of Emergency Response has worked tirelessly to secure site visits to damaged areas and collect damage estimates from residents and business owners to receive this additional financial support from FEMA.”

“Since the moment Hurricane Ida struck our communities, I have been fighting to secure assistance and support for upstate residents,” said Congressman Antonio Delgado (D-19). “I am proud to help deliver both Individual Assistance and Public Assistance to folks in Dutchess County. I encourage residents to apply for FEMA assistance and contact my office with any questions.”

“Securing all the federal assistance available to make a full recovery in the wake of Hurricane Ida has been a top priority for me in Washington. Delivering FEMA Individual Assistance to Dutchess County is a key step in the right direction,” said Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney (D-18). “I have been working closely with local officials, communicating with the White House and Governor’s Office to get our towns, villages, and counties robust federal funding, but we’re not done yet.  I will continue to fight to ensure the rest of my constituents in the Hudson Valley get the help they need.”
