Due to the recent advice of the CDC regarding COVID-19, the Florida Housing Coalition will provide our in-person training and technical assistance using alternative means, such as a series of webinars and virtual meetings. The Catalyst in-person meetings such as site visits and workshops will not be held between now and May. We are currently working with FHFC on specifics and will quickly announce alternatives.

Disaster Preparation and Recovery with SHIP
July 29 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Florida’s housing providers are vital when a disaster strikes, residents are displaced, homes are damaged or destroyed, and lives are disrupted. True recovery is not attained until people are back home to work and school. This training focuses on the role of housing in the preparation, response and recovery of the community’s single family, multifamily, and permanent supportive housing infrastructure. Planning tools are presented that can be deployed jointly by housing and emergency management teams working with charitable organizations. Recovery funding sources including SHIP are reviewed with tips on the Disaster Recovery Strategy. Other sources are covered including FEMA, Small Business Administration (SBA), CDBG-DR and USDA Rural Development. Learn about the hazard, wind and flood insurance needs and issues with coverage and claims for subsidized properties.
