Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
HUD proposes to establish a new record system to add to its inventory of systems of records subject to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended. The proposed new system of records is Disaster Information System (DIS). DIS will contain information on families who apply for and are determined by FEMA to be eligible to receive disaster housing assistance after a presidentially declared disaster. This record system will support the Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP), which is a temporary rental housing assistance program established by an Interagency Agreement (IAA) between HUD and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). DHAP will provide rent subsidies for HUD assisted individuals and families displaced by a presidentially declared disaster.
