It’s been three months since President Biden signed the disaster declaration for the July 25-28 flooding in St. Clair County. Since then, more than $29 million in federal funds has been provided to disaster survivors to help them with their recovery.

If you applied for assistance from FEMA after sustaining damage from the July 25-28 floods, you would have received a letter from FEMA. In some cases, it may say you are ineligible for assistance, but that is not a denial. Applicants are given a reason for the ineligibility and told what they need to do to become eligible. Often, you just need to send more information.

El Programa de Individuos y Familias (IHP, por sus siglas en inglés) de FEMA brinda asistencia económica a personas y hogares elegibles afectados por un desastre que tienen gastos relacionados con desastres sin seguro o con seguro insuficiente. FEMA no puede duplicar pérdidas cubiertas por el seguro. Si su seguro no cubre todas sus pérdidas, o se retrasa, usted puede ser elegible para recibir asistencia para sus necesidades no satisfechas. La asistencia de IHP de FEMA no es un sustituto del seguro y no puede pagar todas las pérdidas causadas por un desastre; su objetivo es satisfacer las necesidades básicas y complementar los esfuerzos de recuperación por desastre.

FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program (IHP) provides financial assistance to eligible individuals and households affected by a disaster who have uninsured or underinsured disaster-related expenses. FEMA cannot duplicate losses covered by insurance. If your insurance does not cover all your losses, or is delayed, you may be eligible for assistance for your unmet needs. FEMA IHP assistance is not a substitute for insurance and cannot pay for all losses caused by a disaster; it is intended to meet basic needs and supplement disaster recovery efforts.
