If you have requested a deferment to reduce your Grant Recapture, Homeowner Responsibility or Escrow amount your deferment may have been calculated incorrectly according to Scope Deferment Policy updates June 6, 2019.

If you are in Reconstruction your sqft of your old home will be used with 8' ceilings if your old home was not inspected and documented by FEMA, HUD or NFIP Insurance adjusters.

Deferments assist homeowners with other agencies grant "Recapture" requirements when their is a duplication of grant money issued (Duplication of Benefits or DOB). State agencies will attempt to reduce to Zero the Recapture amount also known as Homeowners Responsibility and Escrow if possible.
