Emergency & Evacuation Assistance program (EEAP)

If you are unable to evacuate from your home due to being home or bedbound, on life-sustaining medical equipment, or have daily activities that require assistance, you are eligible for the Emergency & Evacuation Assistance Program (EEAP).

You can sign up to receive transportation services to evacuate or a wellness call after a disaster. Make sure to pre-register! Those that pre-register will have priority over those who have not registered for the program. You can register online or call 311.

Small Business Owners

Miami-Dade County small business owners impacted by storms and hurricanes can apply for the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs). Businesses may borrow to repair or replace disaster-damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory, and other business assets. More information can be found here.

If you have a resource you'd like us to share, please email info@axishelps.org with the details.
