During this challenging time, it may be helpful to keep a few things in mind. First, to be eligible for assistance, you should be prepared to prove your losses. Photographs of damages and specific descriptions of the damage/impact can help. Your insurance company or the Farm Service Agency (FSA) may want to inspect your property, so ask about related requirements before cleaning up flood damage. Second, there are many potential programs, and filing notice of loss, applying for assistance, and communication with your insurance company and/or the federal agency responsible for any applicable program is key. Third, private groups are also raising money to help with recovery and the State may have additional relief programs, so it is important to stay in touch and explore all options. Finally, low interest loans from FSA and/or the Small Business Administration (SBA) may also be available.
