Citizenship and FEMA Eligibility

Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC)

Impacted survivors from the approved designated counties can visit the nearest DRC for help to apply for assistance. Representatives from FEMA and U.S. Small Business Administration are available at these centers to explain disaster assistance programs, answer questions about written correspondence and provide literature about repairs and rebuilding to make homes more disaster resistant.

Residents who previously registered for assistance do not need to visit the DRC, but can ask questions or seek further information in person at the DRC in addition to online or by phone.

Save Your Family Treasures

FEMA and the Smithsonian Institution co-sponsor the Heritage Emergency National Task Force, a partnership of more than 60 national service organizations and federal agencies created to protect cultural heritage from the damaging effects of natural disasters and other emergencies.

The Task Force offers the following guidance to help you recover your family treasures from a disaster.

How Do I Appeal the Final Decision?

If you receive a letter stating that you are ineligible for assistance or that your application is incomplete, you can still complete the application or appeal the decision within 60 days of receiving a decision letter. The letter would either be mailed to you or placed into your Disaster Assistance Center account, if you have set up an account.

Verifying Home Ownership or Occupancy

FEMA is required to verify you lived at the address in your application as your primary residence before providing most types of IHP Assistance. FEMA is also required to verify you owned your home before providing Home Repair or Replacement Assistance.

As part of our effort to make the disaster assistance process quicker and reduce the burden on applicants, we try to verify occupancy and ownership by using an automated public records search.

If we cannot verify you lived in or owned the home that you listed in your application, we will ask you to provide documents to prove occupancy and/or ownership to help us determine if you are eligible for assistance.

Como ajudar

Seja voluntário e doe

A recuperação após um desastre pode demorar muitos anos. Há várias formas de ajudar: você pode fazer uma doação em dinheiro ou em itens básicos, ou disponibilizar o seu tempo. Saiba mais sobre como ajudar quem precisa.

Não vá por conta própria para áreas afetadas por desastres. As organizações de confiança que atuam nas áreas afetadas sabem onde a ajuda de voluntários é necessária. Colabore com organizações estabelecidas para garantir que estará em segurança e terá o treinamento e as habilidades necessárias para ajudar.

Voluntary Agency Liaisons (VALs, Intermediários entre Voluntários e Agências) da FEMA estabelecem laços e coordenam as iniciativas com organizações voluntárias, religiosas e comunitárias nos locais onde houve um desastre.

Como negociar com a FEMA

Se tiver interesse em fornecer bens e serviços pagos para o atendimento em caso de desastres, visite a nossa página Como negociar com a FEMA para começar.

Se você tem uma empresa que realiza serviços de remoção de destroços e quiser trabalhar nas iniciativas de limpeza nas áreas afetadas, entre em contato com o governo local nessas áreas para oferecer os seus serviços.
