It is important that you read off communication from FEMA carefully. For those who have completed a FEMA application, you will likely receive a decision or status letter soon. It is important to read the communication in its entirety.
If your application has been deemed “ineligible” for assistance, you do have the right to appeal.
You have up to 60 days from the date on your decision letter to submit your appeal. FEMA will review your written appeal and all supporting documentation; it will then either provide a written decision on your case or request more information.
FEMA has provided some helpful tips to help your review go faster.
If your application states “no decision,” that simply means FEMA is continuing to process your application. That could mean providing more information or missing documentation to complete your application. This could include:
- Proof of insurance
- Copy of insurance claim settlement
- Proof of identity
- Proof of occupancy
- Proof of ownership
- Proof that damaged property is your primary residence
