Relief Information Recap

FEMA

The Federal Government has approved a request for a Major Disaster Declaration in Benton County.

Apply for FEMA Assistance

If you have insurance (such as flood, homeowners, renters, auto, or other types of insurance), please file a claim with your insurance provider as soon as possible. You do not have to file your claim prior to applying for FEMA disaster assistance, but you will be required to provide FEMA with your insurance settlement or denial before being considered for certain types of assistance.

Community Resources

Downloadable flyers available in English and Spanish, detail how to separate debris piles, debris public sites, debris pickup removal, and the Citizen Damage Reporter. We ask that community groups pass these flyers out to help those who may not have access to the Internet. 

Benton County and Hark at Excellerate Foundation have compiled a list of community resources offered to those affected by the storms. The downloadable Excel spreadsheet can be found on the Benton County Relief website. The spreadsheet is updated regularly with new information.

Beware of Scams

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office and Benton County Prosecutor’s Office want to ensure your safety and security, so we’re issuing this important warning about potential scams.
