Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Tennessee Emergency Management Agency, U.S. Small Business Administration, and local agencies will be available at the MARCs to help individuals understand various disaster assistance programs, apply for disaster assistance, and find other programs where they may receive recovery help.

The federal government granted a Major Disaster Declaration for Tennessee on May 8, 2021,
for impacts from the severe storms and flooding from March 25, to April 3, 2021.


The Major Disaster Declaration will provide 23 counties with assistance to repair and replace
infrastructure, and for emergency response measures.

The Major Disaster Declaration is also providing direct assistance to impacted individuals and
households in Davidson, Williamson, and Wilson counties.

Individuals in Davidson, Williamson, and Wilson Counties can apply for FEMA’s
Individual Assistance program in the following ways:

The severe weather across Tennessee in late March caused seven fatalities and disrupted power to
15,000 customers. Some areas of Middle Tennessee received between 7” and 9” of rainfall in a
24-hour-period, resulting in the worst flash flooding event since the Great Tennessee Flood of May
2010.
