Individual Assistance Open Disaster Statistics

Individual Assistance (IA) is provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to individuals and families who have sustained losses due to disasters. Homeowners, renters and business owners in designated counties who sustained damage to their homes, vehicles, personal property, businesses or inventory as a result of a federally declared disaster may apply for disaster assistance. Disaster assistance may include grants to help pay for temporary housing, emergency home repairs, uninsured and underinsured personal property losses, and medical, dental and funeral expenses caused by the disaster, along with other serious disaster-related expenses.

This data contains aggregate statistics on IA program registrants in a number of human categorization and program eligibility subjects areas. One way this data could be used is to analyze FEMA’s IA program response attributes to help shape future assistance.
