HUD is seeking help locating potential resources (vacant units) available to assist with housing survivors displaced as a result of a Presidentially Declared Disaster (PDD). Please complete this form with details of any vacant units, regardless of their connection (or lack thereof) to HUD. While the solicitation is nationwide, HUD and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are specifically targeting potential resources in Louisiana, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, as well as surrounding areas.
As a reminder, federal statue and HUD regulations require that PDD displaced residents be given priority over other applicants for either temporary or permanent housing in all multifamily properties currently insured under sections 221(d)(3), 221(d)(4) and 221(d)(3) BMIR and 236 programs (see HUD handbook 4350.3 REV-1, chapter 4, paragraph 4-6). The term of this requirement is 18 months from FEMA’s publication of the PDD declaration, unless extended by Congress.
