The Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA) is requesting Individuals and Business owners who sustained losses and/or damages from the Severe Weather Storms which occurred on December 17-19, 2023 or January 9-11, 2024 or January 12-14, 2024 to complete an initial damage assessment form. Submitting this information will assist the State in determining whether to pursue Federal reimbursement.
Click on the following link to complete the Damage Assessment Form: www.riema.ri.gov Select the specific storm event related to the damages.
The State is also exploring the possibility of a Small Business Administration disaster declaration which would potentially involve homeowners and businesses.
Homeowners and businesses can now submit directly to RIEMA via the RIEMA website and utilize the Initial Damage Assessment (IDA) Form to document and report physical damage or economic loss to a business.
It is essential that the expenses incurred in disaster response and recovery operations are accurately documented.
