Interactive FEMA Appeals Tool

You can use the interactive interview below to create a FEMA Appeal letter and File Request letter that you can save to your computer and print out. You will be asked a series of questions, and then your answers are used to tailor your documents. This is a free and secure service provided by LawHelp Interactive. 

Important: This program does not e-file or submit your letters to FEMA. You must mail or fax the letters to FEMA yourself. The address and fax number are listed in the instructions that will print with your documents, as well as in the FAQs.

Before you begin the interactive interview, we recommend that you read the Frequently Asked Questions for an overview of the appeals process and other very important information.
