Registration deadline for FEMA assistance extended

Sep 14, 2022 | 2022 Wildfires, Press Releases

SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Wednesday announced that her administration has secured an extension of the registration period for FEMA Individual Assistance for New Mexicans affected by burn scar flooding and debris flows.

The extension follows the state’s continued advocacy to the federal government for extended and increased assistance to New Mexicans impacted by this year’s record wildfires and the flooding that has followed. The previous period for New Mexicans to register for federal assistance under the state’s federal disaster declaration was scheduled to expire on September 6 – impacted New Mexicans will now be able to register with FEMA through Oct. 7, 2022.

This additional time to register with FEMA applies to all counties designated for Individual Assistance related to post-wildfire flooding under the federal disaster declaration: Colfax, Lincoln, Mora, San Miguel, and Valencia.

Impacted New Mexicans can register with FEMA online at or by calling 1-800-621-FEMA(3362). Residents can also register in person or receive assistance with registration for recovery programs at the Disaster Recovery Centers in Mora and San Miguel counties:
