Regional Resources on Disaster Recovery
On this page you'll find links to disaster recovery and building resources in the Gulf Coast region.
DOE's Building Technologies Program is providing technical assistance to Habitat for Humanity. This technical assistance is a continuation of the long-standing partnership between the Building Technologies Program's Building America program and Habitat for Humanity.
The Building America Industrialized Housing Partnership (BAIHP) is working with Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) to develop reconstruction guidelines for the Gulf region, and assembling a list of building scientists and energy analysts who are willing to work with Habitat affiliate builders as they develop damage assessments and reconstruction plans.
Home Energy Raters from the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) have volunteered to provide expertise to their local Habitat affiliates, and BAIHP expects to expand this concept to include HFHI affiliates in the recovery zone.
