If you have been turned down for or received less disaster assistance from FEMA than you feel is needed, your case is not closed. The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced on April 26th, 2013 that New Jersey disaster survivors of Hurricane Sandy who have been turned down for disaster assistance by FEMA have the right to appeal that decision.
Before going through the appeal process FEMA recommends reading your determination letter carefully, as they may only be requesting more information.
You only have 60 days from the date of your determination letter to appeal, so act quickly. For more information on reasons for application denial and how to appeal, click here.
