WASHINGTON — Kentucky homeowners and renters who sustained losses from the severe storms, flooding, landslides and mudslides from Feb. 27 through March 14 in Breathitt, Clay, Estill, Floyd, Johnson, Lee, Magoffin, Marin and Powell counties may be eligible for  assistance from FEMA.

  • FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program has paid more than $14.8 million in flood insurance claims in Kentucky. About 600 claims have been submitted. A major disaster declaration is not required for flood insurance to pay.
  • For losses not covered by insurance, FEMA has approved more than $1.7 million in individual assistance disaster grants for Kentucky homeowners and renters. Grants may help survivors with rent, home repairs, home replacement and other disaster-related needs such as childcare, medical and dental expenses. About 320 households have been approved.
