- Qualified Linn and Marion County survivors and their families continue to be licensed into temporary housing units on a site in Mill City built for that purpose. The remaining families will be licensed in as soon as the installation of their units is complete, which includes pouring asphalt to pave two handicap accessible ramps.
- Survivor housing units are chosen by FEMA based on the survivor family composition and needs, as well as to ensure that requirements for access or functional needs are met.
- Ongoing participation in the program, which can last until March 2022, depends on each survivor’s efforts to find a permanent housing solution and following the rules established by the park and FEMA.
