FEMA Information and Registration

FEMA UPDATE - The federal declaration covers any storm damage that took place during Tropical Storm IDA between Wednesday, September 1, 2021, and Thursday, September 2, 2021. This relief is not just for residents who reported the damage on the day of the storm but anyone who may have experienced storm damage.
 Milltown Office of Emergency Management is working with Middlesex County Emergency Management and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to assess local damage from Tropical Storm Ida last week. 

Under the latest declaration, residents and business owners who suffered losses in Bergen, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Passaic and Somerset counties will be able to request assistance beginning Monday online at or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA(3362). The TTY number for the hearing or speech impaired is 1-800-462-7585 (TTY). Calls will be accepted seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Under the declaration, residents and business owners will be eligible for a series of federal programs, including low-cost loans for property losses not covered by insurance, and grants for temporary shelter and home repairs.

In addition, state and local governments and some nonprofit organizations in those same counties can receive federal funding for emergency work and repair or replace facilities damaged by the storms.

Message from Milltown Office of Emergency Management: 


If your home has suffered any damage because of the storm, please contact Milltown Police 732-828-1100 or email to obtain an  “Initial Damage Assessment Form”.
