FEMA Temporary Housing Update-October 17, 2019
FEMA’s Temporary Housing mission is designed to ensure eligible disaster-affected individuals and families are provided temporary housing after their home is destroyed by a federally-declared disaster. FEMA’s Housing Assistance can be used to rent temporary housing while survivors wait for permanent housing or are able to repair or rebuild their disaster-damaged home. Direct Housing provides housing in Travel Trailers or Manufactured Housing Units in commercial or FEMA group sites as a temporary housing solution.
Housing Assistance: Through FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program, as of October 15, 2019, nearly $52.5 million in Housing Assistance has been provided to 6.999 Butte County households displaced by the Camp Fire.
Direct Housing: To date, 95 households are being housed in Travel Trailers (TTs) in commercial campgrounds and RV Parks being leased by FEMA. Additionally, 383 households have been placed in Travel Trailers and Manufactured Housing Units (MHU) at FEMA group sites in Oroville, Gridley and Chico.
Temporary Direct Housing Sites being Utilized by FEMA as of October 16, 2019:
