The American Bar Association (ABA) is a good resource for these different programs.
There is also a Disaster Legal Services Toll Free Hotline at (866) 606 0626 run by the ABA Young Lawyers Division/FEMA. You can phone in, have your legal problem analyzed and then receive advice on how to handle it.
