About Individual Disaster Assistance

The Recovery section administers Individual Assistance as provided under federal law during a Presidential Declared Disaster (PL93-288 as amended by PL100-700). The Other Needs Assistance (ONA) program is part of the FEMA Individuals and Households Program (IHP). These programs provide disaster assistance in form of grants for home repair, rental assistance and personal property lost or damaged during the disaster for homeowners and renters.

The ONA program works closely with the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, local unmet needs groups, U.S. Small Business Administration, National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and various state and local agencies.
