Hurricane Harvey Disaster Assistance click here.

 

 

 

This is the web adress for applying for Assistance with FEMA:   https://www.fema.gov/apply-assistance  You may also see Kathleen Durham in Human Resources for more information or click the bold letters above.

The Disaster name is "Hurricane Harvey."

 

When you register for disaster assistance either online or by phone, you will need the following to complete your application:

* Social Security Number

* Address of the location where the damage occured (pre-disaster address)

* Current telephone number

* Insurance Information

* Total Household annual income

* Routing and Account Number for your Checking or Savings Account (this allows FEMA to directly transfer disaster assistance funds into your bank account)

* A description of your disaster-caused damage and losses

 

Things to keep in mind are to take pictures of everything and write a list of inventory with the photos so that eveything is documented.  Keep copies of all receipts for both insurance and FEMA.  This includes things you purchased to secure your home and temporary living.  Any repairs must be bid out before you begin work.  FEMA requires competive bidding.  Does not require you to choose one over the other as you may choose who you want to complete the work.  They go by what is reasonable.  FEMA looks at what insurance you have and if it is required based on location.  They will deduct any proceeds from eligibility.

 

If you get the application started, Robert Callies can help with putting the paperwork in order and help with making sure you are taking all required steps.  

 

Stay Safe.
