Auto insurance and the Small Business Administration (SBA) are the two primary resources available to applicants who have damage to a vehicle as a result of a disaster.
If you are not able to secure assistance through either of these organizations, FEMA may be able to assist with the cost of repairing and/or replacing your vehicle that is no longer usable because of disaster-related damage. Verification may be required to show:
An estimate may be required stating that the damage to the vehicle was a direct result of a Presidentially-declared disaster. Transportation repair and replacement award amounts are set by the state on a yearly basis and FEMA cannot exceed the amount of transportation assistance established by the state.
