To speed recovery, survivors are urged to register before visiting a DRC. To register, go online to DisasterAssistance.gov or call the FEMA helpline 800-621-3362. Help is available in most languages and phone lines are open 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. EST seven days a week until further notice.

About the CCP:
The CCP is a short-term disaster relief grant for states, U.S. territories, and federally recognized tribes. CCP grants are awarded after a presidential disaster declaration. CCP funding supports community-based outreach, counseling, and other mental health services to survivors of natural and human-caused disasters.

Types of CCP Grants:
The CCP provides supplemental funding to state, territory, or tribal mental health authorities through two grant programs:
The Immediate Services Program (ISP) grant provides funding for up to 60 days after a presidential disaster declaration.
The Regular Services Program (RSP) grant provides funding for up to nine months after a presidential disaster declaration.
