Cover photo for the document: Individual Assistance Program and Policy Guide (IAPPG)

The Individual Assistance Program and Policy Guide (IAPPG) was developed to serve as a single policy resource for all Individual Assistance (IA) programs. 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.

All policies reflected in this guide are effective for incidents declared on or after January 1, 2019.
