Additional Updates on Disaster Housing Recovery – July 2

The following is an additional update on disaster housing recovery since last week’s Memo to Members and Partners (for the article in last week’s Memo, see 6/25). NLIHC also posts this information at our On the Home Front blog.

Federal Response


FEMA’s Public Assistance program, which reimburses no less than 75% of eligible program costs, approved an allocation of more than $69 million for the Florida Division of Emergency Management. These federal funds will help with Hurricane Irma recovery expenses, including staff salaries, housing, and equipment, for first-responder facilities and Emergency Operation Centers.
