May Flooding Disaster Assistance Hotline Opens for Frederick and Washington County Residents

May Flooding


The Maryland Department of Human Services has partnered with Frederick and Washington Counties to open a hotline to assist residents with available social services and state programs to assist persons affected by the May flooding disaster.  The hotline number is 1-888-756-7836 and the e-mail address is disasterassistance.dhs@maryland.gov.

The hotline serves as a referral and information sharing resource.  It does not provide direct services to households and does not endorse any specific organization.   It can provide information on organizations and programs providing services to those who have needs due to the flood event.

The hotline will be staffed Monday thru Friday, from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.  The hotline can take messages after that time, and a response will be returned within 24 hours.
