Eligible for MHU

You cannot register for Direct Housing such as Temporary Housing Unit, or Manufactured Housing Units (pre-fabricated dwelling such as Mobile Home) directly. You register for FEMA assistance and you may later be referred and possibly determined eligible as part of the registration process. You may be referred based on combination of information about available rental resources in geographic area and information about your specific needs. Not all requested sites may be appropriate for Manufactured Housing Unit placement (lack of utilities, flood zone, etc.). Temporary Housing Unit (THU) can be house, apartment, condominium, manufactured home, or other dwelling acquired by purchase or lease and made available to eligible applicants for limited period of time. If you are being considered for Direct Housing Assistance you may receive call from FEMA representative to complete pre-placement interview (PPI).
