IFP’s specially-trained Crisis Counselors will be available in the community and at FEMA’s Ocean County Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) – readily accessible facilities or mobile offices where applicants may go for information about FEMA or other disaster assistance programs, or for questions related to your case.

  • Answers to questions, resolution to problems and referrals to agencies that may provide further assistance
