Hurricane Harvey disaster recovery centers staffed with recovery specialists from FEMA Apply for FEMA assistance

If you live in a county that has recently been impacted by storms and flooding, you may be eligible for federal disaster assistance to help you get back on your feet. Individuals who live in a presidentially declared disaster zone can receive funds to help pay to repair the damage caused by storms. Both homeowners and renters are eligible as long as their primary residence is located in the affected area. The funds from the program can be used to repair damaged homes in Littleton, CO, pay for temporary shelter, and hire storm restoration and cleanup professionals. Here is a little information about the application process and how to receive your grant.

Start Your Recovery

To start your recovery from a storm or flood, there are a few simple steps you must follow.

  • Call your insurance company to see what is covered under your policy and what is not.
  • Document any damage by taking photos and compiling a list of ruined items.
  • Register with FEMA either online or by phone.

When you are applying for assistance, make sure that you have all documents you may need on hand. Be ready to provide your temporary address, the address damaged by the storm, contact information, social security number, household members, insurance policy, and income information.

After You Apply
After applying, you will have to have a home inspection by an agent. A FEMA inspector will call you shortly after you submit your application to schedule your inspection. At the start of your meeting, you will need to provide proof of ownership or a rental agreement, a photo identification, insurance documents, a list of household occupants, and a tally of your disaster-related damage. Then, your inspector will review your records and take note of any damage to your property. The information that the inspector collects will be evaluated and you will be notified of any grants you may qualify for by mail.
Individuals who live in a presidentially declared disaster zone are eligible to receive federal disaster assistance. Understanding how to start your FEMA application and the approval process makes receiving your funds much less stressful.
