The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today released a summary of its short-term, intermediate and long-term efforts to assist those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Among the efforts are immediate assistance for those displaced from public housing and multifamily subsidized rental units, giving communities in presidentially declared disaster areas the flexibility to redirect money from annual community development block grant (CDBG) and HOME formula funding to address critical needs and more.
