Answer: Yes, the final deadline to apply for Federal assistance with FEMA is December 22, 2022

Rumor: I registered with FEMA and they wanted me to apply for a loan with the SBA. I can't afford or qualify for a loan, so I didn't go any further because they can't help me.

Answer: FEMA and SBA, along with other local, state and federal partners work together to make sure survivors have access to resources to help them with short-term disaster related needs and long-term recovery. After applying with FEMA, you may be referred to the SBA to see if you qualify for a low-interest disaster. If you're referred to the SBA t's very important that you complete the SBA application , even if you don't think you qualify for a loan. Here's why. If you are approved for a low-interest SBA loan, you could use the money for damages that weren't covered by insurance, replacing or repairing your primary residence, or replacing or repairing damaged clothing, furniture, cars, or appliances. The SBA will work with you to provide a loan that fits your personal budget. If you are not approved for an SBA low-interest loan, FEMA will review your application to see what other funding may be available to you.

Rumor: I was told someone from FEMA would call me to schedule an appointment to look at my home after I applied. I haven't talked with anyone.

Answer: After applying with FEMA, an inspector may call to schedule an appointment for a home inspection. They will leave a voicemail. If you schedule a time for an inspection, it is important to have your registration number handy, a photo ID and proof of ownership and/or occupancy. If you miss a call from FEMA, make sure to return the call. If you don't answer or call back, your potential assistance may be delayed until you schedule an inspection.
