Even if You Have Insurance, Register with FEMA

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – If you live in Calaveras or Lake counties and were affected by the recent wildfires and are insured, you may still be eligible for FEMA assistance.

By law, FEMA cannot duplicate insurance or other benefits. However, FEMA may be able to help survivors with uninsured or underinsured losses or if their insurance settlement is delayed. Applicants should notify FEMA of their situation and provide insurance company documentation.

New State/FEMA Disaster Recovery Center Opens in Lake County

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Lake County Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) in Clearlake is open to help survivors impacted by the Valley Fire. Disaster Recovery Centers are operated by the California Office of Emergency Services and the Federal Emergency Management Agency in partnership with the county and local agencies.

FEMA Eligibility Letter May Not Be Last Word on Disaster Assistance

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – If you applied for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and received a letter or text message saying you were not eligible for disaster aid, you should know that the first communication may not be the last word.  While applicants may be ineligible for FEMA disaster grants, they may receive assistance through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). 

And there may be an easy-to-resolve reason why some wildfire survivors received a notice stating that they are ineligible for assistance.
