Nov 29, 2022 | Press Releases

The office of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) will host an in-person recovery assistance center in North Fort Myers to help constituents affected by Hurricane Ian who have been denied individual assistance by FEMA. 

  • “The destruction is catastrophic. Long after the national media moves on, Floridians will continue to recover and rebuild. We’ll be right here with you, and the first step is making sure people and businesses impacted by Hurricane Ian are able to receive the assistance they’re entitled to under the law.” – Senator Rubio

Constituents wishing to appeal should bring their FEMA denial letter and any recent FEMA correspondence. 
Constituents who have not yet applied for assistance, but wish to do so, should bring their Social Security Number, insurance information, damage information, financial information (including annual household income), contact information, and banking information.
