Survivor housing a federal priority
HUD, FEMA, and the SBA have announced that, working with other federal, state, local, and tribal partners, they are beginning to direct efforts toward recovery, including housing survivors displaced by the disaster through the state-led disaster housing task force. HUD is the lead federal coordinating agency for long-term disaster-related housing needs resulting from Hurricane Harvey. Federal partners are working closely with the Texas state-led housing task force, as well as other state, local, tribal and voluntary agencies, to meet the need for quality affordable rental homes. They’re also focused on identifying strategies to strengthen the housing market, building inclusive and sustainable communities, and integrating disaster mitigation measures into community design and development, to reduce future damages.
