Recovery Efforts

If damage to homes and businesses is significant, the state will request Federal Disaster Aid and if authorized, the funding would be available to assist local governments and certain non-profit groups in supplementing the state and local recovery efforts.

Kitsap County is requesting homeowners and business’s report their damage as soon as possible. http://www.kitsapdem.org/
