How do I know what is eligible for FEMA funding?

  • FEMA will only fund work that is your organization’s legal responsibility, required because of the disaster, and located in Vermont.​ You must be able to demonstrate that you had legal authority for work performed as a result of the flooding.
  • Additionally, all costs must be reasonable, adequately documented, and consistent with your policies, regulations, and procedures​.
  • Please refer to the applicant briefings for details on specific types of costs eligible for FEMA funding. You may also contact the State of Vermont’s FEMA Public Assistance Recovery team at with specific questions. Additionally, your assigned FEMA representative and the State of Vermont’s FEMA Recovery Team will work with you 1:1 to determine eligible costs after your RPA is approved.
