Disaster assistance is money or direct assistance to individuals, families and businesses in an area whose property has been damaged or destroyed and whose losses are not covered by insurance. It is meant to help you with critical expenses that cannot be covered in other ways. This assistance is not intended to restore your damaged property to its condition before the disaster.
What Assistance is Available?
While some housing assistance funds are available through FEMA's Individuals and Households Program, most disaster assistance from the Federal government is in the form of loans administered by the Small Business Administration.
