I Applied for Assistance. What's Next?

You will receive notification letters from FEMA either by U.S. mail or by electronic correspondence explaining your next steps. If you reported during the application process that you received damage and are not able to live in your primary residence, an inspector will contact you by phone to schedule an inspection. FEMA home inspections are conducted in-person; however, if you are apprehensive due to ongoing COVID-19 uncertainties, you can request we conduct the inspection without entering your home.

Local Resources Custom Text

Mitigation is defined as taking an action now to reduce future risk.

For example, a mitigation action is tying your shoe to prevent you from tripping and hurting yourself; purchasing a flood insurance policy to help you recover faster from a flood event.


Mitigation breaks the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction and repeated damage. Hazard mitigation includes long-term, permanent solutions that reduce the impact of disaster in the future.


You can reach a mitigation specialist by phone on the FEMA Mitigation Helpline at:

833-FEMA-4-US (833-336-2487) from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mountain Time on Monday through Friday
