Title: ●Hermit's Peak/Calf Canyon Fire Assistance  

This interim final rule sets out the process and procedures for Claimants to seek compensation for injury or loss of property resulting from the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Fire.  Affected State, local and Tribal governments, private sector businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and individuals and households will be eligible to apply for compensation.  Claimants will submit a Notice of Loss to FEMA, meet with a FEMA Claims Reviewer, obtain the documentation needed to substantiate claims, sign a Proof of Loss, and complete and return a Release and Certification Form.  The rule allows affected insurance companies to submit a subrogation notice of loss for possible compensation.
