Houses of worship urged to apply for public assistance.
Florida Division of Emergency Management (Division) encouraged eligible houses of worship to apply for FEMA Public Assistance ahead of the October 30 deadline.
Houses of worship are considered private, nonprofit organizations as they provide an essential social services to disaster-impacted areas. This specific category of nonprofits must submit a loan through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Disaster Assistance program before applying for FEMA Public Assistance. Houses of worship are not required to take out a loan, but FEMA will not fund repairs unless an SBA loan application has been denied or does not cover the permanent work costs.
