The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced the release of the National Disaster Housing Strategy for natural (hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.) or man-made (terrorist attack) disasters.

The Strategy summarizes, for the first time in a single document, the many sheltering and housing capabilities, principles, and policies that guide and inform the disaster housing process. The Strategy also charts the new direction that our disaster housing efforts must take to better meet the disaster housing needs of individuals and communities moving forward. (Post Chronicle)
