After large-scale disasters, the mission of temporary housing is critical. Much has changed since Katrina — one of the largest temporary housing operations in modern history: the technology to construct temporary housing, considerations for resilience, the development and use of the National Disaster Recovery Framework, and a more integrated approach to disaster recovery. Future disasters, especially in anticipation of more intense storms, may challenge us further.

Discussion includes:

  • The importance of knowing where and how your community will provide temporary housing after a disaster and how to optimize the temporary to permanent housing planning process
  • The current federal policies that pertain to the temporary housing mission
  • New technologies and standards for improving resilience of temporary housing
  • Incorporating post-disaster housing considerations into local plans and policies

ASFPM Executive Director Chad Berginnis, will moderate as Shannon S. Van Zandt from Texas A&M University and Thomas A. Womeldurf from the Institute for Building Technology & Safety (IBTS) discuss:
• The importance of knowing where and how your community will provide temporary housing after a disaster and how to optimize the temporary to permanent housing planning process
• The current federal policies that pertain to the temporary housing mission
