Survivors of hurricanes Irma and Maria have eight remaining DRC locations they may visit across the territory. DRCs offer in-person support to individuals and businesses who suffered damages from the hurricanes. Recovery specialists from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) are available to help anyone who needs information or guidance in filing an application.

The eight remaining recovery centers are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, at the following locations:
