Join leaders from across the country on Thursday, November 15 from 10:00–11:00 a.m. ET for a webinar discussion about the post-disaster housing needs of people with the lowest incomes. Members of the NLIHC-led Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition (DHRC) will share insights on the federal government’s response to recent disasters – including Hurricanes Maria, Harvey, Florence and Michael – and the impact on the immediate and long-term housing recovery needs of the lowest income survivors and their communities. This event is open to members of Congress, the media, DHRC members, and housing advocates and organizations.
Advocates working directly in disaster-impacted communities across the Carolinas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and Texas will report on the most pressing housing issues facing survivors as well as actions Congress and the Trump administration can take to address them.
