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.

Disaster Recovery Centers

FEMA has Disaster Recovery Centers (DRCs) across impacted counties. All locations can help homeowners, renters, and business owners who were affected by July’s severe flooding.

A Disaster Recovery Center is jointly operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Kentucky Emergency Management. Representatives from FEMA, the Small Business Administration and other agencies are at the DRCs to answer disaster assistance questions and accept missing documents from survivors.

DRCs are open Monday – Saturday and are closed on Sundays.

Verifying Home Ownership or Occupancy

FEMA is required to verify you lived at the address in your application as your primary residence before providing most types of IHP Assistance. FEMA is also required to verify you owned your home before providing Home Repair or Replacement Assistance.

As part of our effort to make the disaster assistance process quicker and reduce the burden on applicants, we try to verify occupancy and ownership by using an automated public records search.

If we cannot verify you lived in or owned the home that you listed in your application, we will ask you to provide documents to prove occupancy and/or ownership to help us determine if you are eligible for assistance.
