HUD and Partners Pitch in to Help Families Find Housing Following Hurricane Sandy

Post-Sandy, HUD, OSTP, and several tech companies teamed up to help families in need of alternative housing.

Earlier this month, Hurricane Sandy tore through the Northeast leaving thousands of families to pick up the pieces of their homes.  As families begin the process of rebuilding, the demand for rental housing is making it difficult for these families to find alternative housing. 

While the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has worked to expand housing options for lower income families displaced by Hurricane Sandy, HUD, in conjunction with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), worked with several technology companies that have joined a national effort to help these families with innovative housing solutions. These efforts are evidence of the good that can come when Federal agencies work with the private sector to harness data and technology in creative ways.
