State/FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers Closing in Eagle Butte on July 24


PIERRE, SD – The State of South Dakota and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will close the disaster recovery center on the Cheyenne River Reservation at 6 p.m. Mountain time Wednesday, July 24. The center is located at the Cultural Preservation Center, 98 S. Willow St., Eagle Butte. The closure comes as the center has seen a decline in visitation as area residents are moving forward in their recovery.


Prior to the closures, representatives from the State of South Dakota, FEMA, the U.S. Small Business Administration, and other organizations are at disaster recovery centers to offer in-person support, explain available assistance programs and help connect survivors with resources that best match their recovery needs.


After the closures, individuals with questions about their existing case or that still need to register for assistance can still contact FEMA to get information on their case by calling the disaster helpline at 1-800-621-3362 or TTY: 1-800-462-7585 or by going online to www.disasterassistance.gov
