FEMA is announcing its final Individuals and Households Program Unified Guidance which describes the policies for the Individuals and Households Program. The final guidance compiles FEMA policy for each type of assistance under the Individuals and Households Program into one comprehensive document and is intended to serve as a singular policy resource for state, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and other entities who assist disaster survivors with post-disaster recovery.
FEMA received 86 comments during the public comment period. None of the comments received were deemed “critical”, and the majority included only minor grammatical and formatting suggestions. Several comments included requests for statement clarification, which were addressed to improve overall policy comprehension. All comments were reviewed and adjudicated, and the Individuals and Households Program Unified Guidance was updated accordingly.
The final guidance does not have the force or effect of law.
