Depending on the severity and magnitude of the event and the damage, the President may approve a federal Major Disaster Declaration. The disaster declaration may include Individual Assistance, which includes Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Individuals and Households Program. Under this program, FEMA may provide disaster assistance as financial or direct assistance to individuals and families whose property has been damaged or destroyed as a result of the federally-declared disaster, and whose losses are not covered by insurance. The Individuals and Households Program includes both housing assistance to aid disaster survivors with housing needs, and other needs assistance for other eligible expenses.
After a large disaster, the President may award a federal Major Disaster Declaration for the affected area. This declaration may include assistance provided through Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Individuals and Households Program. This program assists eligible individuals and households who have losses or needs not covered by insurance. It is not a substitute for insurance and cannot compensate for all losses caused by a disaster. It is meant to meet the survivor's basic needs and supplement disaster recovery efforts.
Please consult FEMA's Individuals and Households Program Fact Sheet for more information about this program.
After a Major Disaster Declaration that includes Individual Assistance, we will provide details and instructions for FEMA registration through the media, as well as our website and social media accounts .
