Message to the survivors, from the survivors, of prior storms regarding Disaster Assistance.


It is vital that you learn what you are entitled to receive, and what to do in the event you do not receive it. There is no one from the government that will fix things for you overnight, and maybe not in the foreseeable future. It is important to learn what lies ahead in many cases so that you can plan accordingly.

Many survivors of prior catastrophic storms are still waiting to receive Federal Disaster Assistance, years later.

Victims from prior storms dating back to Tropical Storm Allison in June 2001 have logged complaints with FEMAINFO.US. They consistently state that they have yet to receive their full compensation, or in some cases any at all, from FEMA’s Disaster Assistance Program. In each case, their troubles started by not fully understanding what they were eligible to receive, and what to do when they did not receive it.

FEMA provides considerable information about Disaster Assistance, however, it sometimes provides information inconsistent with the governing regulations. The following links provide information from the regulations, and access to them as well.

With the proper knowledge, you are much more likely to receive what you need to rebuild your home and life.
