News and Information

FEMA disaster assistance now includes additional features to make your home healthier and safer if it was affected by Hurricane Ida. These added types of assistance are part of the Individuals and Households Program, and there is no separate application process. It’s important to remember that survivors need to apply with FEMA to find out what assistance they may be eligible for.

Disasters disrupt lives and some families may move from their damaged homes into rental properties or hotels. When phone numbers or mailing addresses change, FEMA can’t reach you. So, after you apply for disaster assistance, you need to let FEMA know each time your information changes.

With climate change increasing the frequencies of these disasters, it is more important than ever to be prepared. One important way you can do this is by having an emergency kit in your house.
