FEMA’s Public Assistance program (PA) provides supplemental assistance to states, territories, tribal, and local governments, as well as certain private nonprofit organizations. The program provides funding for emergency response to save lives and property as well as debris removal and restoration of community infrastructure.
Disaster response is a whole community effort and FEMA is working closely with our partners in government, the private sector, and voluntary and faith-based organizations to help survivors of the Champlain Towers South building collapse and next of kin of lost loved ones.
FEMA may be able to provide financial assistance to you if you have or will incur funeral expenses as a result of the Surfside building collapse under the Other Needs Assistance provision of the Individuals and Households Program.
