Individual Assistance Program and Policy Guide (IAPPG)

From April 23 – June 7, 2018, you can share your thoughts and feedback on FEMA’s draft Individual Assistance Program and Policy Guide.

On September 30, 2016, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) released the Individuals and Households Program Unified Guidance (IHPUG), which for the first time compiled all FEMA policy for the Individuals and Households Program (IHP) into a single, publicly-available resource.

Since then, FEMA has built on the information included in the original IHPUG to develop a single policy resource for all Individual Assistance (IA) programs: the Individual Assistance Program and Policy Guide (IAPPG). This document consolidates policy statements for all IA programs, including the Individuals and Households Program, the Mass Care and Emergency Assistance programs, and the Community Services programs.

The IAPPG is intended to provide a comprehensive policy resource for state, local, territorial, and tribal governments, non-governmental partners, and other entities who assist disaster survivors with post-disaster recovery.
