This registration process is for state and local government and certain private non-profit (PNP) organizations to request a FEMA account for Public Assistance funding. Individuals and businesses should not attempt to register here.
If you are a state or local government or PNP organization, you will be required to provide basic information about your organization to be used during the approval of your request. You will have 1 hour to complete this process.
Private non-profit organizations applying for assistance should be prepared to provide the following when submitting their Request for Public Assistance:
A ruling letter from the Internal Revenue Service that was in effect on the declaration date and granted tax exemption under sections 501(c), (d), or (e) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Documentation from the State substantiating it is a non-revenue producing, non-profit entity organized or doing business under State law, including law citation.
If exempt from both the requirement to apply for 501(c)(3) status and tax-exempt status under State law, articles of incorporation, bylaws, or other documents indicating it is an organized entity and a certification that is is compliant with Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3) and State law requirements.
By proceeding, you are confirming that you are the legal agent of a state or local government organization or private non-profit organization, and you acknowledge that intentionally making false statements or concealing any information in an attempt to obtain Public Assistance is a violation of federal laws, which carries severe criminal and civil penalties.
