Deadline for reconsideration for individual earthquake assistance is Sept. 30
Alaskans impacted by last year’s earthquake who still have unmet needs may apply for reconsideration for help from the state, but they must apply by the of next month.
The application period for the State of Alaska individual assistance reconsideration ends Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m.

2) Applied for FEMA individual assistance by the May 31, 2019 deadline.
3) Finalize the FEMA assistance process — including exhausting appeal options.
