Are you a survivor of Hurricane Ida? Is there a problem with your help from FEMA?
The deadline has been extended to June 1, 2023 to appeal FEMA Denials!
Here are some examples of issues you can try to fix with FEMA:
- FEMA said I have not given documents that show I own the home.
- FEMA said I have not given documents to show I lived in the damaged household
- FEMA did not pay me enough to repair my home.
- FEMA did not pay me enough for my damaged personal property.
- FEMA said I do not qualify for Rental Assistance
You can file an appeal if you have any of these issues or if you have new evidence to show FEMA.
You can file an appeal even if the deadlines have passed on your paperwork. With the appeal, give FEMA the reason why you are late.
Your appeal must be in by June 1, 2023.**
If you need help with an appeal or other Hurricane Ida issue, please call Southeast Louisiana Legal Services at 1 (844) 244-7871
** In some cases, you can file an appeal in Federal Court after this date, but we advise caution. We recommend consulting with an attorney if you need to appeal FEMA’s decision higher.
