Home Damaged by Hurricane Matthew? Here's What You Need to Do
posted 10 months ago by bbrainerd from City of Savannah Housing Department
Households (both renters and homeowners) who have experienced a loss from a disaster should take the following steps immediately:
Contact your insurance company first to file a claim. Any federal assistance will require submitting insurance claim documentation.
All survivors with disaster-related damage to their homes should apply for federal assistance. Individuals and families who either own or rent their home may be eligible for housing needs assistance.
If a resident has insurance, he or she must first seek assistance through their insurance company. If a resident does not have insurance or if insurance does not cover the entirety of the damage, a resident may then be considered for housing assistance.
Individuals should register with FEMA now and assistance will become available once Chatham County is designated for this type of assistance.
