A critical part of disaster recovery is returning displaced families to permanent homes as quickly as possible. Yet developing, locating, and distributing cost-effective, attractive, viable housing options for disaster-affected populations can quickly overwhelm even the savviest of managers. This is the heart of disaster housing operations.
Hagerty Consulting’s emergency managers and housing experts have experience dealing with disaster housing operations and the housing needs of displaced populations. We will help you find innovative post-disaster housing solutions. Our professionals will evaluate your jurisdiction’s current array of housing possibilities and develop guides to transition families from temporary housing to permanent housing. We will help you figure out ways to work around (or through) the bureaucratic roadblocks that may impede some permanent housing solutions, and implement assessment tools to expand the range of alternative housing options available.
Hagerty professionals are not just theoreticians: we will go in the field with you to assist with disaster housing operations. We’ve done this in Mississippi, Louisiana, and New York, to name a few.
