Far too often homeowners and renters are faced with catastrophic situations as a result of a disaster that can make it hard to make their mortgage or rent payments and may be at risk of losing their home. In the midst of a disaster, it can be difficult for survivors to know where to turn for help or overcome various barriers to access disaster assistance programs. It is vital for housing professionals to possess the necessary skills and know-how to assist their communities on how to navigate the process and get the help they need.

By the end of this course, housing professionals will know how to navigate state and federal resources, direct their clients on how to recover after a disaster and provide information about housing recovery options for renters and homeowners who may be unsure of what to do next. In addition, housing professionals will learn how to successfully utilize the Navigating the Road to Housing Recovery: A step-by-step guide for individuals and families to effectively counsel and provide outreach to disaster survivors.
