Description

This dataset contains aggregated, non-PII data from Housing Assistance Program reporting authority within FEMA’s Recovery Directorate to share data on registrations and Individuals and Households Program (IHP) for declarations starting from disaster declaration number 4116, segmented by city where registration is valid. Additional core data elements include: valid call center registrations, valid web registrations, valid mobile registrations, IHP eligible, IHP amount, HA eligible, HA amount, ONA eligible, and ONA amount.

IHP is intended to help with critical expenses that cannot be covered in other ways. The IHP is not intended to return all homes or belongings to their pre‐disaster condition. In some cases, IHP may only provide enough money, up to the program limits, for you to return an item to service. Secondary or vacation residencies do not qualify.

This is raw, unedited data from FEMA's National Emergency Management Information System (NEMIS) and as such is subject to a small percentage of human error.

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.
