Myth and Fact: HUD’s Disaster Housing Assistance Program is necessary

Myth 
HUD's Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP) is necessary to address the housing needs of Puerto Rico survivors. 
FACT 
DHAP is not necessary to house displaced disaster survivors and it has not been proven to be cost effective. 
FEMA collaborates directly with HUD to fin housing solutions for disaster survivors and is providing a variety of housing programs to adequately meet the unique needs of disaster survivors that are more timely and effective than DHAP.
