Since Hurricane Ian has come and gone, Brevard County was left off of the list of approved counties for FEMA assistance by the federal government. Although damage in most area of Brevard was minimal, North Brevard County has been hit hard by flooding that has yet to recede.
Brevard County staff and Commissioner Rita Pritchett have been working “24/7” to fight for the approval of Brevard to be added to the list of approved counties.
They have literally gone from house to house, taking photos of damage and the conditions to send to the federal government, fighting for the much needed funding to help those impacted the most. That hard work has finally paid off.
FEMA Individual Assistance is now available for Brevard County residents.
If you have insurance, you must file a claim with your insurance company first. If you do not have insurance, or insurance does not cover your claim, begin applying for FEMA assistance.
Individuals and households in Brevard who have sustained losses as a direct result of Hurricane Ian can apply for federal assistance. Please have the following information ready when you apply:
