Three New Courses are Now Available!

As housing presents an ongoing challenge in disaster recovery, we have three new courses available on government roles, housing programs, and mass sheltering.



(New) MGT-477: Roles for State, Tribal, and Territorial Governments in the Implementation of Disaster Housing Programs (Instructor-led)

This 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 include an overview of disaster housing task forces, key disaster planning documents (state housing strategy, disaster housing administrative plan, disaster housing plan), and how to incorporate planning considerations for vulnerable populations. 

We are looking for training hosts in Regions 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, and 10.

(New) PER-403W: Addressing the Needs of Disaster Victims Through State, Tribal, and Territorial Housing Programs


This 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) Individuals and Housing Programs that are under the Stafford Act. Information will also be presented on the Disaster Recovery Reform Act (DRRA) of 2018 and the FEMA State-Managed Direct Housing Grant guidance. This information will provide the learner with the base information needed to develop their state, tribal, or territorial housing strategy. Other considerations, such as code enforcement, permitting, and the handling of personally identifiable information, will also be presented.

(New) PER-402W 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.
