FEMA Offers Equal Access to All New Mexico Residents Affected by Wildfires

SANTA FE, New Mexico – FEMA and the state of New Mexico are committed to providing disaster assistance to people with disabilities and access and functional needs. Assistance is also available for those who communicate in languages other than English.

Some individuals without a disability may have temporary or long-term conditions where they also need a little extra help but might not think to ask for it. FEMA offers extra assistance to people such as older adults, individuals who have difficulty with English, or those who have problems with transportation or finances. Be sure to answer all the reasonable accommodation questions on the application so we can see how we can help.
