[ARCHIVED] How to Apply For FEMA Individual Assistance for Winter Storm Recovery


How to Apply For FEMA Individual Assistance for Winter Storm Recovery. When a local, state, territorial, or Indian Tribal Government determines that an incident exceeds their capabilities to respond, the mayor, governor or Indian Tribal Chief Executive must request a declaration from the President. The President may authorize Individual Assistance programs and services based upon whether the resulting damage and its effects are of such severity and magnitude as to be beyond the response capabilities of the state, affected local governments, and other potential recipients of supplementary Federal assistance.

The Individual Assistance mission ensures disaster survivors have timely access to a full range of authorized programs and services to maximize recovery through partnered coordination of local, state, territorial, and Indian Tribal governments, as well as other Federal Agencies, non-governmental organizations and the private sector.
