Damage Assessments

Any community member who experienced fire or wind damage to their home, business, outbuildings, or vehicles is encouraged to complete the Lincoln County online damage assessment process to report their damages.

The more information, the local government can capture, about our damaging event the week of the 7th, the more advocacy the local government can apply for financial assistance from FEMA and the Small Business Administration (SBA) for our recovery.

We encourage any property owner or renter who experienced damage to also fill out the online FEMA financial assistance application - even if you have insurance. You may qualify for some assistance but you must apply to receive any assistance.

Another option for business owners and property owners is to apply through the SBA for low-interest loans for their recovery efforts.

We understand that the information being presented to you is overwhelming and can be confusing; we have provided the most useful documents related to applying to FEMA/SBA in this email and on our website.
