On September 25, 2021, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced the Federal Emergency Management Agency granted her request to expand the Major Disaster Declaration to include households in Macomb and Oakland counties following heavy rainfall and flooding across southeast Michigan in late June. 

One of the possible means of assistance is in the form of low interest loans to help residents mitigate the flooding issues, which in our community were primarily basement flooding issues.

Any resident that has not already applied for assistance, may do so through the FEMA website by clicking the following link: https://www.disasterassistance.gov/get-assistance/address-lookup?address=Macomb,%20MI&isMap=true  In addition, the FEMA hotline phone number is 1-800-621-3362.

If you live in Macomb or Oakland county and have already registered with FEMA since July 15, 2021, you do not need to apply again. If you’re unsure whether you’ve submitted an application, call the FEMA Helpline at 800-621- 3362 to verify your status.
