Maine Emergency Management Storm Damage Survey Individual Property

Individual Assistance is a federal program that can help people recover from a disaster. Assistance may be provided to help with things like:

  • fixing damages to your house
  • rent or temporary lodging
  • replacing furniture or belongings 
  • help replace medical equipment such as wheelchairs and CPAPs

To ask for federal assistance, we must show that a lot of homes were damaged. It’s very easy to determine large scale damage in tornados or hurricanes. It is harder to show large scale damage in Maine because we don’t often have highly damaging storms. Maine is not often able to apply for Individual Assistance because it’s harder to show the damage is enough to meet the guidelines for application.

If the damage was:

  • done to your primary residence
  • your primary residence is uninsured or underinsured
  • you are a US Citizen, non-citizen national, or qualified alien
  • the damage level is major or destroyed
  • the damage did not include your seawall or shoreline, property outbuildings, fencing, or the damage is cleaning up debris in your yard

you should report the damage using the Maine Individual Damage Assessment form.

Maine Emergency Management Storm Damage Survey for Business, Non-Profits, & Homeowners’ Associations

In much the same way that we determine Maine’s eligibility to request federal disaster assistance, after any major weather event, Maine partners with counties to assess the extent of damages to small businesses. Should damages be substantial enough, even if a Presidential Disaster Declaration is not made, we can request assistance from the Small Business Administration (SBA) for low-rate loans.

The SBA offers disaster assistance in the form of low interest loans to businesses, nonprofit organizations, homeowners, and renters located in regions affected by declared disasters. SBA also provides eligible small businesses and nonprofit organizations with working capital to help overcome the economic injury of a declared disaster. Loans can cover lost property, business, non-profit organizations, or a homeowners’ association.

Businesses of any size and most private nonprofit organizations may apply to the SBA for a loan to recover after a disaster if a Federal or Agency Declaration has been made.

You will report damage using the Damage Assessment for Small Businesses (link). We will gather the data to determine if we are able to apply for Disaster Declaration from the President or from the SBA. For those without email or internet access, a printable form is available here.
