SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Public Law 93-288, as amended by Public Law 100-707, the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, Section 408, authorizes the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide Temporary Housing Assistance. This type of assistance could be in the form of mobile homes, travel trailers, or other readily fabricated dwellings. This assistance is used when required to provide disaster housing for victims of federally declared disasters. Accordingly the FEMA Form 90-1 is designed to ensure sites for temporary housing units that will accommodate the home and comply with local, State, and Federal regulations regarding the placement of the temporary housing unit; FEMA Form 90-31, ensures that the landowner (if other than the recipient of the home) will allow the temporary housing unit to be placed on the property; and ensure that routes on ingress and egress to and from property are maintained.
