A Minnesota Disaster Recovery Center to Open in Steele County

A disaster recovery center will open this week in Steele County to help renters, homeowners and businesses in Minnesota affected by the severe storms and flooding of Sept. 21-24.

Steele County
Opening:            Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016

Location:            (The old) Cedarview Nursing Home, 1409 S. Cedar Ave. Owatonna, MN 55060

Hours:                 Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.

At the recovery center, representatives from FEMA, the Homeland Security Emergency Management division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, the U.S. Small Business Administration and other agencies explain disaster assistance programs, answer questions about written correspondence and provide literature about repairs and rebuilding to make homes more flood resistant.

Before visiting a recovery center, residents should register for federal assistance one of the following ways:

  • Online at;
  • Using the FEMA App; or
  • Call 800-621-3362 (FEMA). Applicants who use 711 or Video Relay Service may also call 800-621-3362. People who are deaf, hard of hearing or have a speech disability and use a TTY may call 800-462-7585. The toll-free numbers are open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week. Multilingual operators are available.

Applying for disaster assistance is essentially a two-step process, which ensures consideration for all FEMA programs and SBA disaster loans. First, register with FEMA, then complete and return the no-obligation SBA loan application, if one is offered. There is no charge to apply for the loan and if approved, no obligation to accept it.

FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and does not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits. Residents should register even if they have insurance. FEMA cannot duplicate insurance payments, but underinsured applicants may receive help after their claims have been settled.
