ABSTRACT

Federal Disaster Assistance: The National Flood Insurance Program and Other Federal Disaster Assistance Programs Available to Individuals and Households After a Flood [July 31, 2018]   [open pdf - 933KB]

"After a flood event, people are often uncertain about what types of federal assistance they are eligible for, and if their eligibility for federal disaster assistance is linked in any way to whether or not they have flood insurance. Because much of the other disaster assistance that is available to individuals comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), there may be confusion between possible claims provided through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP, which is also managed by FEMA) and other disaster assistance programs. This report provides an overview of the assistance available to individuals and households following a flood and provides links to more comprehensive guidance on both flood insurance and disaster assistance. The NFIP is described in detail in CRS Report R44593, Introduction to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
