This page documents the metadata for the Registration Intake and Individuals Household Program API data feed.
This submission 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.
Please Note: 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. Visit for more information about the program https://www.fema.gov/public-assistance-local-state-tribal-and-non-profit/.
