According to PEMA, disaster recovery centers (DRC) provide disaster survivors with information from Pennsylvania state agencies, FEMA, and the U.S. Small Business Administration. 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.

Details of the local DRC are as follows:


Manchester Township Municipal Building
3200 Farmtrail Road
York, PA 17406


Monday – Friday: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

  • Guidance regarding disaster recovery assistance and programs for survivors
  • Clarification of any written correspondence received from FEMA
  • Housing assistance and rental resource information
  • Answers to questions, resolution to problems and referrals to agencies that may provide further assistance
  • Status of applications being processed by FEMA
  • Small Business Administration (SBA) program information regarding assistance

State agencies including DEP, Human Services, and the Pennsylvania Insurance Department will be at the DRC. Brochures and information from many other state agencies will also be available. We are also coordinating with county Human Services.
