Get disaster recovery assistance and individual FEMA appeals support from SBP USA

Do you need help with your FEMA application or appeal?⁠

SBP's FEMA Appeals Program helps disaster survivors access more funding to support their immediate and long-term needs. If you applied to FEMA and are wondering if you can appeal your award, the answer is yes. If you were affected by the Hawaii wildfires and were denied or under-awarded, @SBPUSA is here to support Hawaii wildfire survivors with assistance, even with insurance. Don't give up. SBP offers FREE FEMA application and appeal help.⁠

SBPUSA is a non-profit organization offering help to FEMA applicants who were denied or under served in their initial FEMA application requesting assistance. ⁠

For those impacted by a natural disaster, SBP provides one-on-one support applying for and appealing to FEMA. For survivors navigating the post-disaster recovery process, they also offer preparedness and digital recovery resources such as tips for avoiding contractor fraud, how to navigate the insurance claim process, and much much more.⁠

If you need FEMA appeals assistance, contact SBP DAP representative, Kevin K. Ke'a at or call 808-954-9623.⁠

The deadline to apply for FEMA disaster assistance has been extended to Dec. 11, 2023.
