State Still Short of FEMA Damage Qualification Threshold

Indiana Department of Homeland SecurityBusinesses, individual and nonprofit organizations whose property has sustained damages as a result of recent flooding and storms have a few more days to report uninsured damage to the state. Doing so is a first step to see if Indiana may qualify for federal disaster assistance funds.

Indiana Department of Homeland Security spokesman John Erickson says the state is “not even close” to that threshold right now. The reporting deadline is Wednesday, July 29th.

Damage can be reported online

Individuals will be asked to provide their name, address, phone number and type of damage the property sustained. Losses can include structural damage to homes and loss of personal property. Officials stress this is NOT an application for a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Contact your county emergency management agency director with any questions.
