Flood Assistance-Maine Emergency Management Agency

Individual Assistance is a federal program that can help people recover from a disaster. Assistance may be provided to help with things like:

fixing damages to your house
rent or temporary lodging
replacing furniture or belongings
help replace medical equipment such as wheelchairs and CPAPs
To ask for federal assistance, we must show that a lot of homes were damaged. It’s very easy to determine large scale damage in tornados or hurricanes. It is harder to show large scale damage in Maine because we don’t often have highly damaging storms. Maine is not often able to apply for Individual Assistance because it’s harder to show the damage is enough to meet the guidelines for application.
