Flash Flood Update - 8/19/22

Flash Flood Update 8/19/22: As repairs from the July 25th - 28th flash flooding continue, FEMA has expanded their operations in the region to more directly meet the needs of those most severely impacted by water damage.
Several FEMA disaster recovery centers are being established to provide one-on-one assistance to those who were directly affected. Recovery specialists from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration will be able to provide information on available services, explain assistance programs, and help survivors complete or check the status of their applications. FEMA may be able to provide Individual Assistance grant money that does not have to be repaid for:

• Rental Assistance if you needed to relocate because of flood damage
• Personal Property that was damaged or destroyed by the flood
• Lodging Reimbursement if you had to stay in a hotel temporarily
• Basic Home Repairs for homeowners whose primary residence was damaged by flooding
• Other Serious Needs caused by recent flooding
Please note, only one application is allowed per household and FEMA does not pay for lost or spoiled food. By law, FEMA is not allowed to duplicate insurance payments or assistance provided by other sources. Disaster recover assistance is available without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, English proficiency or economic status.
