How FEMA disaster assistance applies to undocumented immigrants?
- Everyone affected by the flood should consider applying for disaster assistance. Non-citizens issued a legal permanent resident card, or those with legal resident status because of asylum, refugee status, parole status, suspension of deportation status or status as victims of domestic violence are eligible to apply with FEMA.
- Only one member of a household needs to be eligible to qualify the entire household for assistance, however, that person must have a social security number.
- Parents and guardians may apply for assistance on behalf of a minor child here legally.
- FEMA does not collect information on the immigration status of other household members.
- Those in the United States with temporary tourist visas, student visas, work visas and temporary resident cards are not.
