Update on Private Property Debris Removal (PPDR) Program

The City of Panama City would like to address a potential rumor about its Private Property Debris Removal (PPDR) Program. Although registration has closed, the City has NOT ended the program.

The City has begun the debris removal process for residential applications that the City has vetted and FEMA has reviewed. All remaining applications for residential debris removal that the City has vetted are pending review by FEMA.

Commercial and demolition applications are also pending FEMA review.

FEMA inspections are scheduled to begin late this month. We anticipate a response from FEMA in about 30 days.

This is a federally-funded program. To be eligible, applicants could not have received duplication of benefits, such as insurance coverage or FEMA benefits for debris removal or demolition.

If you have a question about your application for PPDR, please email your name and address to
