Emergency & Evacuation Assistance Program (EEAP)

The Emergency & Evacuation Assistance Program (EEAP) provides free evacuation assistance to eligible residents living in Miami-Dade County who need specialized transportation and/or sheltering or who would like to receive a wellness call after a disaster.

Prior to an emergency, residents who may require medical monitoring, assistance with daily living or have life-saving medical equipment dependent on electricity should register for the EEAP to ensure help is available when needed. Pre-registered residents will receive priority during an emergency. It may also be utilized post-disaster to provide other assistance. 

This program is for individuals who live alone or with families and may have access/functional needs. Residents living in long term care facilities such as nursing homes, assisted living facilities or group homes are not eligible for this program as these facilities are required by law to develop an emergency plan and provide emergency assistance for their clients.

When an emergency arises, pre-registered residents will have priority over those who have not registered for the program.
