Florida Homeowner's Guides from FL Department of Revenue, Property Tax Oversight
Residents are encouraged to report property damage that occurs during Hurricane Ian.
Damage assessment forms are critical for FEMA purposes. They help officials understand the severity and magnitude of damage to property, get assistance, and direct building inspectors to the appropriate areas.
FEMA (FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY)
Seminole County residents are now eligible for financial and direct services from FEMA's Individuals and Households Program (IHP) ONLY. You must first file a claim with your insurance company. If you do not have insurance, or if insurance does not cover losses caused by Hurricane Ian, you may apply for FEMA assistance. IHP assistance is not a substitute for insurance and cannot compensate for all losses caused by a disaster. The assistance is intended to meet your basic needs and supplement disaster recovery efforts.
To learn more about eligibility criteria and review what FEMA assistance covers for households and other needs:
To apply for FEMA IHP assistance:
- Take photos of your damaged home and belongings.

- If you do not have insurance, or insurance does not cover your claim, begin applying for FEMA assistance online, on the FEMA app, by phone, or by mail. For more information, visit the FEMA Individual and Households Program (IHP) website.
