The goal of the AHPP Quality of Life (QOL) study is to provide FEMA with a rigorous evaluation of the quality of life outcomes for AHPP recipients in the four states that received AHPP grants. Over the four-year study, the evaluation will assess a range of outcomes, including households’ economic and employment situations, physical and mental health status, and changes in housing satisfaction. Household surveys will be the primary tool for evaluating the impact of AHPP on program participants’ quality of life.
