The State of South Dakota and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have opened a disaster recovery center on the Cheyenne River Reservation to offer in-person support to individuals and businesses in Dewey and Ziebach counties who were impacted by the severe winter storms and flooding from mid-March to late April 2019.

This follows previous openings in Minnehaha and Yankton counties, and the Pine Ridge and Rosebud reservations.

Representatives from the State of South Dakota, FEMA, the U.S. Small Business Administration, and other organizations are at the centers to explain available assistance programs and help connect survivors with resources that best match their recovery needs.

The Cheyenne River center is located at the Cheyenne River Reservation Cultural Preservation Center at 98 S. Willow Street in Eagle Butte. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. MT.

Homeowners, renters and businesses should register for disaster assistance before visiting a recovery center. To register, go online to DisasterAssistance.gov or use the FEMA mobile app or call the disaster assistance helpline at 800-621-FEMA (3362) or 800-462-7585 (TTY) from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. local time seven days a week until further notice.
