Direct Temporary Housing

The road to recovery for many Hurricane Laura and Delta survivors includes placement into temporary housing units.

Damage to the existing housing stock in Southwest Louisiana from hurricanes Laura and Delta severely limited the availability of alternative housing options for households whose homes were destroyed or made unlivable due to major damage. To help meet the housing needs, FEMA’s Direct Housing Program was implemented. FEMA prefers to place temporary housing units on individual private property owned by the applicant to keep households in their community and near their jobs, schools, churches and friends, while they rebuild their homes and lives. But the process of placing temporary units on properties takes time; Each installation is a construction project.

The road to recovery for many Hurricane Laura and Delta survivors includes placement into temporary housing units, many of which are located in commercial parks.

Hurricanes Laura and Delta battered areas of Louisiana where available housing was already limited. To help meet the housing needs, as part of the Direct Temporary Housing Program, FEMA has identified a number of commercial parks with available pads throughout the affected areas to temporarily house displaced residents.

How To Help


Recovery will take many years after a disaster. Cash is the best way tohelp those in need.

Assistance for Multiple Disasters

When there are two or more disasters declared for the same designated area, FEMA works to ensure applicants receive all eligible help while preventing duplication of federal benefits. This will be the case for families affected by both Hurricanes Laura and Delta.
