When a home is damaged due to severe weather, it can often be overwhelming and difficult to know what steps should be taken to aid in recovery.

According to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, for homeowners to receive federal assistance for their damaged home after a disaster, a Federal Individual Assistance Declaration must be approved by the president.


Damage assessments, which are currently underway, could determine if Mississippi qualifies for Individual Assistance following Hurricane Zeta.

The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency has created an easy to understand step-by-step video guide to help understand the process when it comes to  Individual Assistance and SBA assistance that could be available if the appropriate declarations are approved.

‪If you received damage from Hurricane Zeta, you can report it to MEMA using the self-report tool. ‬
