 FEMA May Reimburse Short-Term Lodging Expenses

 

FEMA provides financial assistance to make sure those displaced by Hurricane Florence are in safe and secure housing.  This is especially true as colder temperatures move into North Carolina this weekend.  If a person has received FEMA funds, they can use that money to pay for a hotel or motel room.

Many people are staying in a home without heat or outside in a tent or other temporary shelter. If you know someone doing so, encourage them to use their FEMA funds for a hotel room.

If residents do get a hotel room during this cold snap, they should keep their receipts.  This will serve as proof that the FEMA assistance was used as intended. It will also help to show a continued need for housing help.  This may allow the person to receive additional FEMA funds if they are eligible.

Receipts should show survivors’ names, the name of the lodging facility, dates of occupancy and the amount paid.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, North Carolina Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr issued the following statement regarding North Carolinians who are applying for federal disaster assistance:
 
“We’ve recently heard stories of North Carolinians who were denied federal assistance for losses associated with Hurricane Florence. Our offices are now requesting additional information from FEMA and local officials to get a better sense of specifics surrounding these reported cases. While not every North Carolinian who suffered property damage will be eligible for federal assistance, we want to make sure everyone who is eligible for assistance receives it. We encourage any North Carolinian having issues with their application for federal assistance to contact our offices by calling 704-509-9087 (Tillis) or 336-631-5125 (Burr).”
 
Background:
Residents from North Carolina who are initially denied disaster assistance can appeal the decision to FEMA. The offices of Senators Tillis and Burr have been assisting North Carolinians with the FEMA application process, and residents are encouraged to contact their offices if they have any questions or are not receiving timely or satisfactory responses.
 
Senators Tillis and Burr led the North Carolina Congressional delegation’s successful efforts to secure a significant down payment for the state’s long-term recovery in legislation passed last week. Senators Tillis and Burr will continue to work with Congressional leaders to ensure North Carolina has the long-term resources necessary to rebuild from Hurricane Florence.
