Description

This dataset was generated by FEMA's Enterprise Coordination & Information Management (ECIM) Reporting team to share data on FEMA's Housing Assistance Program for House Owners within the state, county, zip where the registration is valid for the declarations, starting with disaster declarations number 4116.

This dataset contains aggregated, non-PII data. Additional core data elements include number of applicants, county, zip code, inspections, severity of damage, assistance provided, and owner or renter. Data is self-reported and as such is subject to human error. To learn more about disaster assistance please visit https://www.fema.gov/individual-disaster-assistance.

The financial information is derived from NEMIS and not FEMA's official financial systems. Due to differences in reporting periods, status of obligations and how business rules are applied, this financial information may differ slightly from official publication on public websites such as usaspending.gov; this dataset is not intended to be used for any official federal financial reporting.
