DENVER – In the more than seven months since heavy rains brought flooding in September 2013, Colorado survivors have received more than $339.5 million from FEMA disaster grants, flood insurance payments and SBA low-interest disaster loans.

To date:

  • Through its Individuals and Households Program, FEMA has granted more than $56 million for housing assistance in 11 designated counties and nearly $4.9 million in other needs assistance, such as disaster-related medical expenses or personal property loss.
  • FEMA has obligated more than $106.8 million to publicly owned entities and certain nonprofits in 18 designated counties. Through its Public Assistance cost-share program, FEMA reimburses 75 percent for eligible, disaster-related costs for debris removal, emergency measures and permanent work to repair and replace disaster-damaged public facilities. The remaining 25 percent nonfederal share comes from state and local sources. The state manages the grants for all projects.
  • The SBA has approved more than $106 million in federal disaster loans to Colorado homeowners, renters, businesses and private nonprofit organizations that sustained damage from the severe storms and flooding.
  • The National Flood Insurance Program has approved nearly $65.5 million to settle 2,093 claims or almost 98 percent of the submitted claims.
  • FEMA is providing manufactured housing units for 36 households who have no other suitable housing available.
  • Disaster survivors can call FEMA at 800-621-3362 to check their application status, or provide updates about their insurance claim or contact information. A FEMA representative is available at the toll-free number from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m., MDT, seven days a week or the TTY line at 800-462-7585 for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
