You are invited to view a live webcast of the HUD Office of Policy Development & Research briefing.
The Quarterly Housing Market and Research Update includes the following:
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development allocated $19.4 billion of supplemental CDBG funding to Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas to help communities and property owners recover from hurricanes Rita, Wilma, and Katrina that devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005. Come join us to discuss the role these dollars played in housing recovery as we examine the results of a new PD&R study, “Housing Recovery on the Gulf Coast, Phase II Results of Property Owner Survey in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas,” which can be found here. This unique study employs a detailed survey of over 700 affected property owners as well as windshield observations of over 3,500 damaged properties to shed new light on the individual and neighborhood factors that affect housing recovery.
We hope you can join us for this exciting discussion on HUD’s disaster recovery efforts. After a brief presentation on the study panelists will share their perspective and expertise on the issue. There will also be time to field questions from the audience, via email and Twitter. Follow the event on Twitter #PDRupdate and email in questions during the webcast to PDRQuarterlyUpdate@hud.gov.
