need help.
FEMA is the “Federal Emergency Management Agency,” and they provide resources to people affected by major disasters.

To be eligible, you must be able to prove that you or a minor child in the household are a United States Citizen, a Non-Citizen National, or a Qualified Alien (such as a permanent resident, asylum-seeker, or refugee).
To apply, visit disasterassistance.gov (for the Spanish language version, visit disasterassistance.gov/es).
