Direct Temporary Housing

  • Marion is one of four Oregon counties approved to participate in FEMA’s Direct Temporary Housing Program.
  • In Marion/Linn counties, construction for FEMA temporary housing began Dec. 30.
  •  Once completed, the new site in Mill City is expected to hold up to 16 temporary housing units.
  •  Temporary housing is provided one of two ways: recreational vehicles (RVs) and Manufactured Housing Units (mobile homes).
  • 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.
