Home Damaged by Hurricane Matthew? Here's What You Need to Do
posted over 3 years 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.
