LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – If your home was damaged during the recent severe storms and tornadoes but you can still live in it safely, you may qualify for up to $300 from FEMA and the State to help with cleanup. This assistance is for eligible homeowners and renters whose homes were damaged between May 24-27.

You may qualify if:

  • You live in a county designated for Individual Assistance: currently Baxter, Benton, Boone and Marion counties.
  • If you own your home and a FEMA inspection determines it was damaged by the disaster, but is habitable; 
  • If you are a renter and the inspector notes that you can live on the property, but cleanup is needed or has already been done.
  • The damage is not covered by your insurance.
  • FEMA determines your disaster-damaged home is safe to occupy.
  • You save your receipts from any supplies, materials or paid help.
