As housing presents an ongoing challenge in
disaster recovery, we have three new courses available on
government roles, housing programs, and mass sheltering.
Roles for State, Tribal, and Territorial Governments in the
Implementation of Disaster Housing Programs (Instructor-led)
instructor-led training will provide learners with information
on how state, territory, and tribal (STT) governments can plan
for and implement disaster housing programs. The course will

90-minute web-based course will assist in preparing state,
tribal, and territorial leaders to plan for administering
disaster housing programs after a disaster. The course will
review the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA)

Act. Information will also be presented on the Disaster
Recovery Reform Act (DRRA) of 2018 and the FEMA State-Managed

Pandemic Planning for Mass Sheltering (Web-based)
This 90-minute, web-based, performance-level
course is designed to help the learner plan for mass sheltering
operations during multiple disasters and/or during a pandemic.
The course will begin with a review of basic mass sheltering
principles. The course will then focus on sheltering when
simultaneous disasters occur, including a pandemic. Planning
considerations will be presented, including planning for social
distancing and quarantine and isolation issues. The course will
conclude with a look at planning considerations for socially
vulnerable populations who may need shelter.
