Disaster Recovery Center Open in Montgomery County

Overview of Clarksville Tennessee

CLARKSVILLE, TN - Tennessee Emergency Management Agency and FEMA have opened a Disaster Recovery Center in Montgomery County to help people affected by the Dec. 9 tornadoes. 

The Center is located at the Clarksville-Montgomery County Public Library (350 Pageant Lane). Hours for the center are as follows:

Monday-Thursday: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

Friday-Saturday: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Sunday: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

What is a disaster recovery center?

Disaster Recovery Centers provide disaster survivors with information from Tennessee state agencies, FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Survivors can get help applying for federal assistance, learn about the types of assistance available, learn about the appeals process and get updates on applications. 

Storm survivors in Davidson, Dickson, Montgomery and Sumner counties may be eligible for FEMA financial assistance for temporary lodging, basic home repairs, personal property losses and other uninsured disaster-related expenses.

In addition to visiting a center, homeowners and renters can apply by going online to, using the FEMA mobile app or calling 800-621-3362. The phone line is open daily, and help is available in most languages. If you use a relay service, such as video relay (VRS), captioned telephone or other service, give FEMA your number for that service. 

Disaster Recovery Centers are accessible to people with disabilities. They have assistive technology equipment that allows disaster survivors to interact with staff. Video Remote Interpreting is available and in-person sign language is available by request. The centers also have accessible parking, ramps and restrooms.
