Trenton, NJ  – Anyone affected by Hurricane Sandy can now visit a newly opened Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in Monmouth County if they have questions about recovery programs. This brings the number of centers in Monmouth to four and the number statewide to 31. All but one are open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. except the center in Bay Head, open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. while the curfew there remains in effect.

All New Jersey Disaster Recovery Centers will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, November 22 and will reopen on Friday with new hours, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. except for Bay Head.

It is helpful to register with FEMA before visiting a DRC. Individuals and business owners who sustained losses can apply by registering online at, or by web-enabled mobile device at By phone or 711/VRS, call 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or TTY

At DRCs visitors can speak one-on-one to recovery representatives. FEMA program specialists provide registration and other information and answer questions.  FEMA mitigation specialists provide guidance on cost-effective rebuilding and repair techniques to reduce property damage in future disasters.

In addition to FEMA program specialists, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) customer service representatives are available to answer questions about the SBA low-interest disaster loan program, and to assist with disaster loan applications.

The new DRC is located at:

Long Branch Fire Station #4
199-205 Union Ave
Long Branch, NJ 07740
