Federal Disaster Assistance Includes Right of Appeal
October 28, 2014
WARREN, Mich. - Michigan residents who receive a letter from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) saying they do not qualify for disaster assistance have the right to appeal.
An applicant has 60 days from the date of the determination letter to appeal the FEMA decision.
"Sometimes the letter only means that FEMA needs more information," said Michigan State Police Capt. Chris A. Kelenske, State Coordinating Officer and Deputy State Director of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. "Applicants should read the entire letter for clarification."
