HUD SEEKS COMMENTS ON OUTCOME EVALUATION OF DISASTER HOUSING PROGRAM

Thursday, May 6, 2010 - 4:45AM

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today invited public comments about its Disaster Housing Assistance Program Incremental Rent Transition Study. To assist households displaced by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP) was implemented to provide rental assistance and case management services to eligible displaced families. HUD is conducting an outcome evaluation of the program entitled the DHAP Incremental Rent Transition (IRT) Study. HUD says this study represents an important opportunity to learn about rent-setting strategies and case management services in a post-disaster housing program. The results of this study will feed into decisions about how HUD should operate such programs after future disasters. Click here for more information about the study and how to submit comments.
