FEMA Website Provides A Resource For Sandy Survivors To Find Rentals

LINCROFT,  N.J. – Families and individuals in New Jersey who are registered for federal disaster assistance and need a place to live can search through hundreds of rental listings on the FEMA Housing Portal.


The FEMA Housing Portal consolidates rental resources identified and provided by federal agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the U.S. Veterans Administration (VA), and also lists rental properties provided by private organizations and property owners willing to help their neighbors during these difficult times.


FEMA recommends that those who use the portal contact the number on the listing prior to traveling to the location of the property to make sure the property is still available. This site is updated regularly, but available housing units are being filled continuously so FEMA encourages users to check back often for the most current information.

    The people who will benefit the most from these types of announcements won’t see it because they have no computer and in some cases no telephone so they don’t know what is going on.

    It would be great to get someone from FEMA or the RED CROSS into either of the distribution centers in Highlands so that when people stop by they can get a handout with the appropriate information on it. I’m sure that they’d also like to know whether their checks are going to be delivered to their homes or whether they have to go pick it up somewhere.
