FEMA is the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is responsible for providing and coordinating emergency services in Presidentially declared disaster areas.

How long will it take to get FEMA/State disaster help? If you are eligible for help, you should receive a U.S. Treasury/State check or notification of a deposit to your bank account within about ten days of the inspector’s visit. Other types of assistance may be provided later, based on specific eligibility and need.
