FEMA Won’t Help Individual Flood Victims

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will not be providing assistance for individuals in Houghton, Gogebic, and Menominee Counties following the June flooding.

US Senator Gary Peters issued a statement Thursday following the denial of individual assistance though FEMA had previously declared these areas eligible to receive assistance through the Public Assistance Program.

Peters called the decision disappointing and said he will work with FEMA and the State of Michigan to identify any additional avenues for individual assistance.

He also encouraged communities to identify any personal property damages that may not have been captured by the original damage assessment.

FEMA will be providing help for local municipalities for the repair of roads and infrastructure, but not for families whose houses have been severely damaged or destroyed.
