Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition Develops Online Tool to Collect Disaster Recovery Stories

To increase the responsiveness of federal disaster housing programs, the NLIHC-led Disaster Housing Recovery Coalition (DHCR) of more than 700 organizations has developed an online tool for capturing individual stories of disaster survivors. These accounts of unmet need will be collected for use with policymakers and the media to illustrate the unique housing challenges low income disaster survivors face and to build support for solutions. The DHCR asks legal aid, advocacy, and other organizations serving disaster survivors from the hurricanes and wildfires of 2017 to help the coalition collect these stories by filling out the online questionnaire for any client/individual with a compelling need for direct rental assistance.
