2008 Hurricane Recovery - Information for Consumers and Bankers in the Affected Areas
The FDIC is working cooperatively with all of the state and federal banking agencies and other organizations to determine the status of the financial institutions located in the affected areas. In an effort to provide information to those affected by the 2008 hurricanes, we are developing information and providing links to answer your questions about your banks.
The Web site will be updated frequently as information is made available.
Information for Families' Rebuilding Efforts in Gulf Coast States - The FDIC and NeighborWorks® America created the Navigating the Road to Housing Recovery Guide (Guide) to assist consumers impacted by hurricanes Katrina, Wilma, and Rita. The Guide will also be a valuable tool for financial institutions, counselors, and other organizations working with consumers.
The FDIC has issued letters to bankers encouraging them to work with borrowers in the areas hit hard by the storm. In turn, consumers and business owners experiencing difficulties beyond their control should feel free to actively reach out and work with their financial institutions.
