Mortgage assistance

I lost my job because of the disaster and I am unable to make my mortgage or rent payments. Will FEMA make payments until I can return to work?


FEMA assistance is limited to home repair, personal property repair and rental assistance for temporary housing; we are unable to assist with mortgage or rent payments if you stay in your damaged home.

If you lost work as a result of the disaster, you may qualify for Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA). You may contact your local unemployment office or Workforce Commission for additional information regarding DUA benefits. You may also contact your mortgage lender or landlord to explain your circumstances and situation to see if special arrangements can be made.
