Timeframe to Use Disaster Assistance Funds

Do I have to use my funds for disaster assistance in a certain amount of time?


The funds you receive for disaster assistance do not have to be spent within a set time frame.  However, if you receive disaster assistance in the form of a check, please be advised the check is good for only twelve (12) months.  Retain receipts as FEMA may audit the use of disaster assistance funds provided to you at any time within three years.
