The White County recovery center can be found at 1017 O’Conner Blvd.

Anyone in need is encouraged to visit any of the centers where they can have their questions answered, speak with FEMA recovery specialists, receive assistance with completing FEMA recovery applications and acquire additional information on the resources that are available.
