Governor DeSantis announces state-led portal for temporary housing

Reporter: Lauren Leslie Writer: Paul Dolan

The state of Florida released a new portal on Monday, separate from the FEMA portal, but with a different form of government providing the help.

The state-led portal has the same goal as the FEMA portal, but it gives you another option if you need temporary housing and have not been able to get it through FEMA.

On Monday, Governor Ron DeSantis unveiled the Unite Florida Recovery Portal, a new website to get help after Hurricane Ian.

The main goal is to allow people to live on their property while their homes are getting fixed.

The state-led program would provide temporary housing as either an RV or trailer.

The portal is where you can apply for help, and it’s not just for housing.

You can also use the portal to report needs for transportation, household items, and even social services.
