Use the information here and the following pages to clean and manage your home after a flood.
Who's Knocking At Your Door
After a flood disaster, expect multiple visitors who will want to help you recover. It’s common for multiple visitors to perform damage assessments on your home. No matter who’s knocking, always ask for identification and the purpose of the visit. Never give out personal information such as your Social Security or bank account number. Government officials will never ask for money and you should never pay for their service.
Applying for SBA Disaster Loans
SBA disaster loans are the primary source of money to pay for repair or replacement costs not fully covered by insurance or other compensation. Use these handouts to learn more about the SBA assistance program.
Understanding Your FEMA Letter
If you applied for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) because you sustained damage from the March winter storm, straight-line winds and flooding in Nebraska, you will receive a letter from FEMA in the mail or via email. The letter will explain the status of your application and how to respond. It is important to read the letter carefully. Your letter will include the amount of any assistance FEMA may provide to you and information on the appropriate use of disaster assistance funds.
