An historical archive of the year of the great flood.

FEMA does not require that a house be damaged or destroyed in order to qualify for aid. The fact that you live in a place that has been declared a Federal Disaster Area (which it has) and your house has become unlivable but is intact, is sufficient to qualify for disaster aid. How much and when is an entirely ¬†separate matter. In the end you may not get what you want or what you think you deserve. But if you don’t apply I can guarantee you will get nothing. So, apply to FEMA no matter your situation (see the FEMA menu item for contact information).

Based on my own experience, I recommend applying by phone if you haven’t applied yet. I found out today that the path my online application was taking was based on some answers that probably should have been different. That may cause some delay in a determination. I said, well I’ll just change my answer (truthfully) and the agent said it was too late.
