Emergency Lodging Assistance
For individuals who have been impacted by wildfires, the first step to access federal assistance is to register at DisasterAssistance.gov.
There may also be a need for long term lodging for evacuees. Lodging properties that can help should register with the FEMA Emergency Lodging Assistance (ELA) Portal. Registration not only allows FEMA to easily locate the lodging facility but also enables the agency to provide reimbursement for housing of evacuees. On this site, businesses providing lodging can find program FAQs, a user guide, and other information to clarify program requirements.
