Texas' Alternative Housing Pilot Program (AHHP) features prefabricated panelized homes constructed quickly for emergency housing which can also be converted to permanent housing.  This unit is expandable and its flexibility allows for accommodation of various community needs. The units can be demobilized and stored in a container for future use and can be reconstructed as needed.

The units will be placed on individual sites in east Texas and in a development in Harris County.  These units will house displaced residents currently living in FEMA travel trailers and mobile homes.
