Assistance is not being provided based on your income. If your parish is on the list, you will qualify. The benefits will be effective the day you apply.
If you are staying in a hotel, when you check out be sure to ask for the final bill. You will need it for your insurance and FEMA in order to receive a reimbursement.
Tell FEMA and insurance you need to stay in a hotel, or with family or friends, while you are waiting for home repairs, or power to be restored at your home. If you need to stay in a hotel due to no power, just give the front desk your FEMA number to pay for your room but not taxes. If you need to stay somewhere due to damage FEMA will pay up to 12 months( it will be extended).
You can stay with family, friends, or rent an apartment. They will reimburse you the full amount. Must submit a lease or written contract from the family or friend you're staying with.
(example $1200.00 one homeowner or up to $2400 monthly for family.)
Write down or give an estimate of how much food you lost and had to throw away for reimbursement .This reimbursement will be paid ASAP ( you still have to wait for an adjuster but the check will be issued on the spot.)
Start getting at least three estimates and have them for an adjuster appointment. It will speed up the process.
