FEMA Offers Lodging Reimbursement
Missourians who have registered with FEMA due to flood and storm damage from April 29 to July 5, may be eligible for reimbursement if they paid out-of-pocket expenses for temporary lodging because of damage to their primary residences from recent flooding, severe storms and tornadoes.
To be eligible for lodging expenses reimbursement an applicant need to:
- register with FEMA
- pass identity verification
- verify occupancy in a primary residence within a designated county
- verify that the primary residence is uninhabitable or inaccessible
- incurred disaster-related temporary lodging expenses from April 29 to July 5
- does not have insurance that would cover lodging; and
- did not receive lodging assistance during the same timeframe.
Reimbursement funds are available for eligible applicants under FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program. Survivors who are approved for lodging reimbursement must submit zero-balance receipts to FEMA to receive payment. The reimbursement will not cover incidental costs such as phone calls, laundry, internet, food, movies or pet care.
Local counties included in the assistance include: Carroll, Chariton, and Livingston counties.
