In recent weeks, FEMA has gradually closed its Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) and this Monday it will do the same with eight additional ones: Arroyo, Barceloneta, Cayey, Las Piedras, Santa Isabel, Toa Baja, Ciales and Utuado. . After the closure of these eight DRCs, 15 would remain available to care for the victims, out of a total of 43 that were enabled.

The FEMA Individual Assistance specialist Idamis de Jesús explained that, once the “regular period” for submitting claims ends, they will receive, for two additional months, the so-called “late applications”, in which a justification for the delay must be included. .

“It will require a justification for why the person could not register within the initial period. For example, let’s say that a person had some medical situations and was hospitalized, out of the country for the period that assistance was offered for the first 60 days. Depending on the situation presented to us by the citizen, we analyze case by case to verify how this late request can be adjusted or approved,” said De Jesús, estimating that less than 20% of these records that have been submitted for previous disasters were approved.
