Registration Deadline Approaches For OK Disaster Assistance

Posted: Updated:

The deadline to register for state and federal disaster assistance for the severe storms, tornadoes, straight-line winds and flooding that occurred between May 18 and June 2 is quickly approaching.

Monday, August 19 is the last day that homeowners, renters and business owners can register with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. More than 15,000 households have already registered and more than $54.3 million in disaster assistance has already been approved.

Disaster assistance is available in the designated counties of Canadian, Cleveland, LeFlore, Lincoln, McClain, Okfuskee, Okmulgee, Oklahoma and Pottawatomie for eligible survivors who suffered uninsured and underinsured losses from the spring storms.

Aid may include housing assistance grants to help pay for temporary housing and home repairs, other disaster-related needs for personal property replacement or to pay for other necessary disaster-related expenses, and U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) low-interest disaster loans for homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and private nonprofit organizations. The deadline for submitting an SBA application is also Monday, Aug. 19.

"If you have storm damage, please register with FEMA before the deadline. We want to ensure that everyone who is eligible receives assistance for their losses," said Michelann Ooten, State Coordinating Officer and Deputy Director with the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management.

An SBA Disaster Loan Outreach Center remains open at the Moore Norman Technology Center located at 13301 S. Pennsylvania Avenue, Oklahoma City. Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday – Saturday until further notice. SBA representatives are available to provide one-on-one assistance completing applications, answering questions and assisting with loan closings.

Survivors who have already registered with FEMA but have additional questions or need to complete their registration process with more information or documentation should simply stay in touch with FEMA; this support is available even after the August 19 deadline.

Survivors can register by calling (800) 621-3362, registering online at, or using a smartphone typing in
