Homeowners who have a National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)policy and have damages or losses from Hurricane Hermine have been granted a 30-day extension to turn in a Proof of Loss. A Proof of Loss is a policyholder’s statement of the amount of money being requested, signed and sworn to by the policyholder, along with documentation to support the amount requested initially, and any requests for additional payment. Policyholders must submit a Proof of Loss (www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/9343) directly to their flood insurance company within 90 days after the date of the flood loss.

The FEMA Individuals and Households Program (IHP) provides financial help or direct assistance in the form of grants for both homeowners and renters. The maximum amount of assistance provided by these grants is limited, and is not intended to restore your home to pre-storm condition. These funds can be used to pay for temporary housing or emergency home repairs to make sure your residence is safe and sanitary. FEMA grants do not have to be repaid. FEMA assistance is nontaxable and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid or other federal benefits. By law, FEMA assistance cannot duplicate assistance received from an insurance settlement. Secondary homes or rental properties are ineligible for this program. Federal guidelines only allow housing assistance to be used on primary residences affected by disaster.
