Disaster Housing Recovery Educational Resources

Since the 2017 hurricanes and wildfires, FEMA has failed to meet the long-term housing needs of disaster survivors by refusing to implement proven solutions, like the Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP). By providing direct rental assistance and case management, DHAP helps the lowest income survivors get back on their feet. In response to the mischaracterizations in FEMA's Fact Sheet: Myths vs. Facts - FEMA's Transitional Sheltering Assistance Program, the Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition is setting the record straight.
