DENVER – December 25, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — As 2014 comes to an end, the temporary housing program managed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the aftermath of the September 2013 foods continues to assist Colorado families while helping them secure permanent housing. There are 13 households in Boulder, Weld and Larimer counties still residing in FEMA-provided manufactured housing units, with the program scheduled to be completed by mid-March. Over the course of this housing program, a total of 47 households in the three counties have found housing in FEMA-provided manufactured homes.
FEMA continues to meet with residents on a monthly basis to assist them with developing a long-term housing plan, and those meetings will continue until the housing mission concludes. The agency is also working with the state and local recovery committees and non-profits to utilize other assistance programs to help residents.
In addition to providing direct housing, FEMA has also provided more than $61.8 million in emergency housing assistance to Colorado residents to make repairs to their damaged homes or rent another home. Another $300 million in assistance has been provided for Colorado communities to make repairs to or replace damaged public infrastructure, conduct debris removal and perform emergency work during the initial response.
FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
