Reimbursement for damage to generators, chainsaws, vehicles, etc.

Why didn't FEMA reimburse me for all of the damage to my generator, chainsaw, vehicle, etc?


The items eligible under FEMA's Other Needs Assistance (ONA) provision of the Individuals and Households Program and categorized as uninsurable expenses (chainsaw, generator, etc.) are chosen by the state on a per-disaster basis and are established by standard line item pricing. Pricing is established as the disaster is declared and is used throughout the disaster. FEMA cannot exceed the amount of assistance as determined by standard line item pricing and the State.
