If your home was damaged but you can live in it safely, FEMA may be able to provide up to $300 in one-time financial assistance to help with cleanup. This assistance is for eligible homeowners and renters.

You may qualify for FEMA assistance if you meet the following criteria:

  • Based on a FEMA inspection, your home has disaster damage; or if you are a renter, the inspection noted clean-up actions are needed or have already been done.
    • If you have already cleaned up, save your receipts from any supplies, materials or paid help.
  • The damage is not covered by your insurance.
  • FEMA determines your disaster-damaged primary residence is safe to occupy.
