This body collaborates with FEMA, other federal agencies, and state and local officials on relevant housing recovery matters.

HUD-certified housing counselors are prepared and well-trained to guide the available options for homeowners and renters requiring immediate housing and disaster recovery assistance. You can make use of the online search tool to find a HUD-approved housing counseling agency.
