FEMA Housing Portal
The FEMA Housing Portal is intended to help individuals and families, who have been displaced by a disaster, find a place to live. The portal consolidates rental resources identified and provided by federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), U.S. Veterans Administration (VA), private organizations, and the public, to help individuals and families find available rental units in their area. FEMA recommends to those who use this portal, that they contact the number on the listing prior to traveling to the location of the property to make sure the property is still available. This site is updated regularly, and we encourage those who use the portal to check back often for the most current information. Other helpful housing resources may be available on commercial websites.

FEMA | Multi-Family Lease and Repair Program (MLRP)
Available to landlords with qualified rental properties, including apartments.
Working with state Housing Task Force partners, FEMA identifies potential buildings that, with some FEMA financial assistance, could be fairly quickly and with moderate expense, repaired to go back into commerce, so that they can be offered as temporary housing for FEMA applicants. Then FEMA makes contact with the property owner or landlord, to see if they wish to list their property, or property owners can apply.
