Regional Disaster Housing Recovery Plan (RDHRP)
HOUSING RECOVERY PLAN
The plan provides guidance for the implementation of interim housing and the restoration of permanent housing following a catastrophic event. It is a start-up kit for government-led emergency management operations that organizes the coordination and communication of all participants under the leadership of a Disaster Housing Group, State-led Disaster Housing Task Force or other Housing Recovery Authority. The Plan outlines the Disaster Housing Group and Interagency Task Forces that bring together the right people from local, state and federal agencies as well as non-profit organizations and the private sector to address problems efficiently and provides them with a mission, overview, member list, agendas, and key data points.
HOUSING RECOVERY CENTER PLAN
A one-stop shop for people who need housing assistance and other related services after a catastrophic event. The Plan outlines the concept of operations for the Housing Recovery Center network so emergency managers and all participating service providers can efficiently provide housing recovery services. This plan outlines scalable and flexible administrative and management systems essential to coordinated and consistent operations of the housing recovery center(s).
COMMUNITY RECOVERY PLAYBOOK
Provides 60 targeted housing recovery program profiles, each having an immediate impact on recovering housing in dense urban environments. The Housing Group/Recovery Authority can activate these programs immediately to develop action plans to access the US Department of Housing and Urban Development's Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds.
PARTICIPATORY URBAN PLANNING TOOLKIT
A resource for coordinating emergency management response and recovery operations with non-profit organizations and the private sector. It contains a Participatory Urban Planning Interagency Task Force document and a Communications Guide that facilitate whole community recovery.
HOUSING RECOVERY AND RAPID REPAIR PLAN AND BID SPECIFICATION
This tool consists of a Program Plan and Bid Specification to develop an actionable plan for rapid housing repair. Rapid Repairs provide interim fixes that enable residents to move back into their homes as quickly as possible. The Plan outlines how to enable a rapid mobilization of coordinated construction efforts across the region and the Bid Specification helps in procuring appropriately qualified contractors quickly.
URBAN POST-DISASTER INTERIM HOUSING PROTOTYPE PROGRAM
New York City and FEMA have created a deployable multi-story, multi-family interim housing solution that will work in urban areas across the country. Resources developed through the Program include a collection of design approaches from the “What if New York City..." Design Competition, a Neighborhood Design Playbook, an Urban Post-Disaster Housing Unit Performance Specification, and a study for using deployable housing to support neighborhood recovery.
