Residents should register with FEMA even if they have insurance, but only if their property was damaged by the floods or wind-driven damage. They should register with FEMA even if they have registered for help from other agencies such as the American Red Cross, disaster-relief organizations, or community- or faith-based organizations.
U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) – Low-interest disaster loans from the Small Business Administration may also be available to cover losses not fully compensated by insurance. (Important: You need to sign up with the Small Business Administration even if you do not own a business to receive future FEMA benefits.)
