Public Assistance Program for Public Sector Entities
Through the Public Assistance Program, FEMA provides supplemental grant assistance to government agencies for debris removal, emergency protective measures, and the restoration and mitigation of disaster-damaged facilities.
It is recommended that government agencies interested in applying for FEMA aid reach out to their property & casualty consultant/broker for further discussion, as well as collaborate with other public entities who have experience with FEMA assistance received for a hurricane or natural disaster.

The IHP provides financial and direct services to eligible individuals and households who have uninsured or under-insured necessary expenses and serious needs.

Assistance may include:
Funds for temporary housing while you are unable to live in your home, such as rental assistance, or reimbursement for hotel costs
A temporary housing unit, if approved for the disaster, when you are not able to use rental assistance due to a lack of available housing resources
Funds to support the repair or replacement of owner-occupied homes that serve as the household’s primary residence, including privately-owned access routes, such as driveways, roads, or bridges
Funds for other uninsured or under-insured disaster-caused expenses and serious needs, such as repair or replacement of personal property and vehicles, or funds for moving and storage, medical, dental, childcare, funeral, and other miscellaneous items approved by your state, territory, or tribal government
Funds for hazard mitigation assistance to help eligible homeowners repair or rebuild stronger, more durable homes
