The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on a proposed continuing information collection.

End Preamble Start Supplemental 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 FEMA to provide Temporary Housing Assistance. This type of assistance could be in 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 housing unit) will allow the temporary housing unit to be placed on the property; and ensure that routes on the ingress and egress to and from the property are maintained.
