Individual Assistance Preliminary Damage Assessments—Introduction
Individual Assistance Preliminary Damage Assessment (IA PDA) are conducted in order to guide State response efforts, assess the need for federal assistance and estimate disaster impact to businesses, individuals and families. IA PDA teams are deployed to disaster sites to evaluate damages specifically to homes and businesses. Public infrastructure is evaluated separately. Depending on the size of the event, State team members may be joined by a FEMA PDA team member, Small Business Administration (SBA) team member and/or local team member.
