FEMA Online Disaster Assistance Registration Privacy Policy

We care about your privacy and are required by law to provide you with a copy of the Privacy Act.

The information you give to FEMA will be used to refer you to disaster assistance programs. It may be shared with your bank, insurance company, or other assistance providers to ensure there is no duplication of benefits. It may also be shared with state and local governmental agencies to help reduce future disaster losses.

Failure to provide this information will result in a delay or a rejection of your request. You authorize FEMA and the state to verify the information that is entered.

If you knowingly make false statements to obtain disaster aid, it is a violation of Federal and state laws that carry penalties including severe fines or imprisonment up to 5 years, or both.

By continuing with the registration process you agree to the statements provided in the Privacy Act above.
